Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Friday gave his backing to Rep. Ben Quayle, who is involved in a bitter member-vs.-member primary brought on by redistricting in Arizona.

“Ben Quayle is a consistent and trusted conservative that the people of Arizona can count on,” said  Huckabee. “Ben has done a tremendous job his first two years in Congress and he has the passion and knowledge to continue to be an effective leader for Arizona. Ben has entered politics for the right reasons and because of that, Ben Quayle has my full support and trust.”

Quayle, the son of former vice president Dan Quayle is up against fellow freshman Rep. David Schweikert in the new Sixth District which is based on Scottsdale. The new district contains most of Quayle's current Third District.

Quayle welcomed the endorsement. “Gov. Huckabee is someone I have admired for many years," he said. "He is a champion of family values and his bold leadership has been pivotal to helping the conservative movement fight back against Barack Obama’s big-government, big-spending agenda. I am honored to have his support."

The primary will be held on Aug. 28.
