The son of former Vice President Dan Quayle plans to announce his candidacy March 31 for the U.S. House seat that’s now held by retiring Republican Rep. John Shadegg.
Ben Quayle, a 33-year-old lawyer and managing director of a Scottsdale investment firm, will officially enter a crowded primary field of at least five other Republicans interested in the seat.
His platform includes reducing federal spending, improving border security and fighting attempts to raise taxes.
The district that Quayle will run in is Republican-leaning and covers parts of Phoenix and Scottsdale and some rural areas to the north.
The only Democrat in the race is Phoenix lawyer and businessman Jon Hulburd.
