The Goldwater Institute has named retiring U.S. Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona as a senior fellow.

The libertarian-leaning group says Shadegg will help fulfill its mission of economic freedom and limited government by sharing his experience and expertise with other scholars.

Shadegg is a plaintiff in the Phoenix-based group’s challenge to health care overhaul passed in Washington last year.

Shadegg served eight terms in Congress as a Republican. He was elected in 1994 as Republicans were swept into power under Newt Gingrich’s “Contract for America.”

Shadegg’s father ran several campaigns for Sen. Barry Goldwater.

Republican Ben Quayle, the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, succeeds Shadegg in Congress.
