Schweikert Defeats Quayle in Primary Battle

Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) sent fellow Rep. Ben Quayle (R-AZ) packing in the closely watched battle that pitted the freshmen Republicans against each other, the Arizona Republic reports.

"As ballots rolled in, Quayle campaign volunteer Paul Gorman attributed the loss to fallout from a recent story about Congress members partying in Israel, including one who stripped naked to swim. Quayle was on the trip but said he only took a brief, reverent dip in the Sea of Galilee."
