Former VP Dan Quayle’s Son, Rep. Ben Quayle, Becomes First Freshman House Republican to Lose Seat in Primary Over Redistricting
Arizona Tea Party darling Rep. Ben Quayle is the first Freshman Republican to lose his seat in what has been characterized as a bitterly contested primary between he and Rep. Dave Schweikert. Ben Quayle, the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, becomes the 8th House member to lose to a fellow lawmaker as a result of redistricting. He’s the 12th overall member to lose a primary this cycle. Good riddance. Kinda makes the whole Sea of Galilee scandal worth it. His loss gives a whole new meaning to “here today, gone tomorrow.”
What makes this whole think hilarious is that Ben Quayle had called on Dave Schweikert to concede, the Fix reports. Um, wrong man!
