Congressman-elect David Schweikert takes over in District 5

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- The second time was a charm for Congressman-elect David Schweikert. In a rematch of the 2008 election, he beat now former Representative Harry Mitchell to represent District 5.

He pumped thousands of dollars of his own money into his campaign and he made no apologies for it.

The newly elected congressman stopped by 3TV to chat with Tara Hitchcock the morning after a very long election night.
