Rep. Ben Quayle Becomes First Freshman House Republican to Lose Seat in Primary (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Arizona Tea Party darling Rep. Ben Quayle is the first Freshman Republican to lose his seat in what has been characterized as a bitterly contested primary between he and Rep. Dave Schweikert.  Ben Quayle, the son of  former Vice President Dan Quayle, becomes the 8th House member to lose to a fellow lawmaker as a result of redistricting. He’s the 12th overall member to lose a primary this cycle. Good riddance. Kinda makes the whole Sea of Galilee scandal worth it. His loss gives a whole new meaning to “here today, gone tomorrow.”

What makes this whole think hilarious is that Ben Quayle had called on Dave Schweikert to concede, the Fix reports. Um, wrong person bro, you got it twisted!

    Do you ever wonder why Rep John Lewis or John Conyers or Chaka Fahtah never lose their seats despite the condition of large segments of their base in their districts?
