(CNN) – Dan Quayle's son is running for Congress.
Ben Quayle announced Friday that he will seek the Arizona House seat being vacated by retiring Rep. John Shadegg.
"My generation is going to have to clean up the mess made by the politicians in Washington," Quayle said in a statement. "The reckless spending and crushing debt burden must be stopped."
According to the statement put out by a spokesman, the younger Quayle is managing director of Tynwald Capital, "a firm specializing in the acquisition and nurturing of small business."
