Ben Quayle Joins Law Firm
Former U.S. Rep. Ben Quayle (R-AZ), son of former Vice-President Dan Quayle, has decided to join a Detroit-based law firm, Clark Hill PLC, working in its Phoenix and Washington, D.C. offices as a senior director of government and public affairs. Quayle tells the Arizona Republic that he has no immediate plans to seek public office again.“I’m not ruling out running, but I’m not going to be running in the near future,” Quayle said. Quayle lost a hard-fought primary race last year with U.S. Rep. David Schweikert after the two were thrown into the same congressional district following redistricting. Quayle told The Republic that he had been advising the developer of PhoenixMart, a large real estate and manufacturing project in Casa Grande, Arizona, following his departure from Congress in January.
