Like the old saying goes better late than never.
SC representative Trey Gowdy endorsed presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump today during an interview on Meet the Press daily. Gary surprised people early in the campaign season buying doors and Marco Rubio before the South Carolina primary. Gowdy was a Tea Party favorite and arguably he still is.

Gowdy is an honorable man. He doesn’t like everything about Trump but he understands that Hillary needs to be stopped and sent to prison.
From The Hill:
“I was a [Marco] Rubio guy, and if Marco had won I would have expected the [Ted] Cruz supporters and the [John] Kasich supports and the Trump supporters to support my guy,” he added.
“My guy lost. When the jury speaks, I’m going to support the jury.”
Gowdy had previously said he will support the eventual GOP nominee, but had declined to specifically throw his support behind Trump.
Asked about his attitude toward Trump, Gowdy said that “I actually didn’t think I was that hesitant.”
“I was a Rubio guy and Marco lost, but I will enthusiastically support the Republican nominee.”
His statement is a sign of further consolidation behind the billionaire New Yorker, who has faced persistent opposition from some Republicans.
Gowdy was a prominent supporter of Rubio late last year.
