Rep. Trey Gowdy said he’s going to leave Congress at the end of his term because he feels like he’s been a “lousy politician” because he doesn’t see political life about winning and losing.

“I enjoy the justice system, I enjoy being fair. I enjoy the pursuit of fairness as a virtue. And I’m just more comfortable in that system,” he said on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”

“My wife hates it when I say this, but I was a pretty good prosecutor, I think. I’ve been a pretty lousy politician. I’ve done it for seven years, I’m really grateful for the opportunity to do it.”

Gowdy caught Washington off-guard earlier this week when he announced he would be retiring at the end of his term and would attempt to return to work as a prosecutor in South Carolina. He’s yet another high-profile Republican who has decided not to run again in 2018.
