PHOENIX (AP) — Two Republican incumbents are battling it out in a primary race in Arizona's 6th Congressional District, a situation the GOP desperately wanted to avoid in redistricting.
One of the candidates is Ben Quayle, son of former Vice President Dan Quayle. Ben Quayle won a tough congressional battle two years ago.
The other is David Schweikert, who defeated a popular Democratic incumbent that same year after spending millions and getting national support.
The two face each other in the Aug. 28 primary for the Republican-leaning 6th District, which includes Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and parts of Phoenix. The winner will move on to the Nov. 6 general election against a relatively unknown Democrat.
