(Scottsdale) "The United States Constitution allows candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives to run wherever they choose without regard to residency. Today Congressman Quayle chose to exercise that right when he announced his decision to run in Arizona's 6th District. That is his right to do so," said Chris Baker, spokesperson for the Schweikert for Congress campaign.
"While it is unfortunate for Republicans that Congressman Quayle has decided to abandon his own district to run in Congressman Schweikert's district, we are confident based upon our polling and the incredibly positive response we have received to David's candidacy, that David will prevail in this primary," concluded Baker.
