Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., leaves a closed-door Republican strategy meeting at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday. Speaker of the House John Boehner has tapped Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, to chair a special select committee to investigate the attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the ambassador and three other Americans. Benghazi resonates with Republicans and remains a rallying cry with conservatives whose votes are crucial to the GOP in November's historically low-turnout midterm elections. (AP Photo/J.
