Rep. Schweikert tops Rep. Quayle in Arizona's member matchup

Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) defeated fellow freshman Rep. Dan Quayle in their member-vs-member primary.

Quayle called him to concede, the Arizona Republic reports. The Associated Press has called the race.

According to the most recent results, Schweikert had 53 percent of the vote to Quayle's 47 percent, with nearly 80 percent of precincts reporting.

Quayle and Schweikert were thrown into the fierce fight due to redistricting. Though Quayle retained most of his constituents in the new district, Schweikert's campaign has worked to label the congressman as a member of the political establishment, playing off of local memories of his father, former Vice President Dan Quayle.
