|Description||Rep. Ben Quayle's (R-Ariz.) campaign is arguing that a mailer from his primary opponent, fellow GOP Rep. David Schweikert, has sexual connotations, and is demanding an apology. |
Schweikert's campaign is not backing down from the controversial mailer it issued on Friday, which characterizes Quayle as someone who "goes both ways." The campaign says the wording refers to his flip-flops on important issues.
"The mail piece was clearly intended to say 'both ways' — taking the liberal and conservative side on issues," said Schweikert campaign spokesman Chris Baker.
