Former Rep. Ben Quayle is moving on from politics after losing to another sitting congressman in last year’s Republican primary.
Quayle is joining the law firm of Clark Hill PLC as a senior director in the firm’s government and public affairs practice group. The son of former Vice President Dan Quayle will work in both Phoenix and Washington.
Quayle served one term after winning an open Phoenix-based seat in 2010 in a race featuring an attack ad on President Barack Obama. He decided to take on Rep. David Schweikert in the 6th District after redistricting made his old seat more competitive.
Clark Hill announced Quayle’s hiring on Monday. He told the Arizona Republic he could make another political run but has no plans to do so in the immediate future.
