Cong. David Schweikert has clearly established himself as Arizona’s most effective congressional lawmaker. He’s well-reasoned, fair-minded and puts the country first. Schweikert would make an excellent U.S. Senator.
He should run for the Senate seat vacated by the retiring Sen. Jon Kyl, and here’s why:
First, Schweikert is the right man for the job and deserves a promotion.
Second, Schweikert will beat Cong. Jeff Flake, an official candidate and the hand-picked man of John McCain and Kyl, in the Republican Primary.
Third, Schweikert can win a statewide election against the Democrat nominee – probably by a wide margin.
Fourth, Schweikert’s congressional district can be retained by fellow Republican Cong. Ben Quayle. With the re-districting of the congressional districts, Schweikert and Quayle both reside in the same district. Rep. Quayle is no Schweikert, but he’ll represent the district well.
