Super PAC Ad Takes Aim At Prince Ben Quayle
U.S. Rep. Ben Quayle won a close, hard-hitting primary two years ago in Arizona and went on to win his first term in Congress. As a result of redistricting, he has been thrown into a newly-drawn district with a fellow Republican, U.S. Rep. David Schweikert, and is in a tough primary battle to survive. Although a majority of the district includes Quayle's current district, Quayle's Scottsdale home is not in the newly-drawn district. The National Horizon Super PAC is running a negative ad referring to Quayle derisively as a "prince." The founder of the PAC, C. Boyden Gray, served as White House Counsel to President George H.W. Bush. Quayle's father, Dan, of course served as the elder Bush's Vice-President.
