Press Release

Washington, DC - Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-04) released the following statement after Mick Mulvaney was confirmed in the Senate as our new Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

“Congratulations to my friend from South Carolina and the new Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney. Mick is incredibly bright and capable. He has served the people of South Carolina impeccably, and I know he will represent our nation with the same commitment. Since day one, Mick has dedicated himself to understanding our budget and the regulatory process, and I have no doubt he will seek to implement long-term reforms to restore our nation's fiscal health. 

Mick was not only a talented colleague, but he is also an incredible friend on a personal level. Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, Mick Mulvaney and I came into Congress together in 2011 and forged friendships that are rare in politics. Last night Senator Tim Scott and I had dinner with Mick for the last time as a colleague. We will all miss working with him on a daily basis, but we look forward to seeing him serve our nation in his new capacity. We will miss Mick, his wife Pam and their triplets as they embark on a new chapter of public service."
