Harold Watson "Trey" Gowdy III (born August 22, 1964) is an American television news presenter, former politician and former federal prosecutor who served as the U.S. representative for South Carolina's 4th congressional district from 2011 to 2019. His district included much of the Upstate region of South Carolina, including Greenville and Spartanburg. Before his congressional career, Gowdy served as a federal prosecutor in the District of South Carolina from 1994 to 2000 and then as the solicitor (district attorney) for South Carolina's Seventh Judicial Circuit, comprising Spartanburg and Cherokee counties from 2000 to 2010. From 2014 to 2016, Gowdy chaired the United States House Select Committee on Benghazi which was partly responsible for discovering the existence of Hillary Clinton's private email server. His investigative committee spent over two and a half years and $7.8 million investigating the events surrounding the 2012 Benghazi attack, ultimately not finding evidence of specific wrong-doing by then-Secretary of State Clinton. Gowdy pressed for the prosecution of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign. Beginning in June 2017 he chaired the House Oversight Committee. On January 31, 2018, Gowdy announced that he would not seek re-election in 2018 and that he intended to pursue a legal career instead of politics. He has since rejoined the law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, and also joined Fox News as a contributor. In early 2021, he served as an interim host of Fox News Primetime, and then was named host of Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy later that same year.

Voterly uses special interest group ratings to determine a politician's stance on a political or social issue. Special interest groups release ratings of politicians to convey whether that politician is in favor of their cause. For example, a politician who actively supports gun rights will receive a high rating from a pro-gun interest group. That same politician would be rated low by a gun control interest group. This collection of ratings informs where we place a politician on the spectrum of the issue.
