U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin Endorses Trey Gowdy For House Majority Leader

Sep 30, 2015 9:18 AM

Like many other Republican congressmen, U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin on Tuesday announced his support for Trey Gowdy of South Carolina to be the next majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The scramble to fill that position comes just days after House Speaker John Boehner surprised many in the party by suddenly announcing his resignation last week. The current majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, is a leading candidate to replace Mr. Boehner, which would leave his position vacant.

“Since being sworn in to Congress this past January, I have gotten to know Congressman Trey Gowdy well, and have experienced firsthand how he is an effective leader with tremendous intellect, moral character, charisma, vision and heart,” Mr. Zeldin said in a statement released on Tuesday.

“The Republican Party, but more importantly, our country, would be remarkably well served with Trey as majority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives. Trey is a talented and incredibly bright fighter who will move our country in a better direction. If Congressman Gowdy chooses to run for leader, he has my full support.”

Congressman Gowdy, like Representative Zeldin, is a conservative Republican who has sponsored legislation that would allow the House of Representatives to sue the president if it disagreed with his enforcement of the law. He currently is a supporter of federally defunding Planned Parenthood and will actively vote to shut the government down if it fails to do so.

Mr. Gowdy is also known for his investigation into the Benghazi killings on September 11, 2012, in which four Americans were killed by Islamist militants when they invaded the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

“You are the company that you keep, and Congressman Zeldin’s endorsement of Tea Party Congressman Trey Gowdy for a leadership position is just the latest on a growing list of Zeldin’s far-right wing associations,” Meredith Kelly, of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said in a release on Tuesday. “As Zeldin continues to cozy up to fringe Republicans–whether Gowdy, the Oath Keepers, or even Donald Trump — he only makes it increasingly clear that he is out of step with Long Islanders.”

Mr. Zeldin has not yet announced who he will support for the position of Speaker of the House.

Political party affiliation aside, Otis Pike and Lee Zeldin have more in common than you might care to admit. The primary difference being the state of American politics circa 1979 vs. 2015.

Pro environment
Pro military spending
Staunch proponent of integrity and accountability, and so on... case in point, Lee Zeldin's support of Trey Gowdy.

BREAKING: Teamsters Withhold Endorsement for Hillary, Want to Meet With Donald Trump

Jim Hoft Sep 29th, 2015 5:45 pm

TEAMSTERS OFFICIALS WANT TO MEET WITH DONALD TRUMP!

Teamsters officials met behind closed doors today. The union refused to endorse Hillary Clinton for president.
The officials told FOX News they want to meet with Donald Trump.
James Rosen reported:
By 27dan (2809), Shinnecock Hills on Sep 30, 15 12:02 AM
In speaking about his reasons for retirement, Mr. Pike stated that he was "Concerned but tired". "That seems to be the general situation. Pike, for example, pointed out that his fellow congressmen seemed indifferent to the national debt and the national deficit". (Washington Post July 1978)

Lee Zeldin - "Our national debt is rising. We need to right this ship, balance our budget and continue to be a leader in the global economy." Facebook
Sep 30, 15 10:39 AM appended by Mr. Snerdley
Even more evidence Pike and Zeldin are similar in their policis, Mr. Pike was clearly against big government and even stated "People bug me more than they used to. They are asking their government to do more for them and are willing to do less and less for themselves." "There were 100 votes when I came to Congress. This year there were over 700-25 percent of them so one-sided and noncontroversial we shouldn't have had them all." Source - Parade November 5, 1978

Donald Trump’s not going away.

Trump’s campaign is now the real deal - If New York Times magazine profiles are your barometer, at least. Mark Leibovich spent some time with the GOP frontrunner on the trail (and in Trump Force One) as Trump continues to hold his lead at the top of the polls. And when does this whole Trump ride end? “I have no idea,’’ Trump says. ‘But I’m here now. And it’s beautiful.’’”
