Washington (CNN) - The freshmen class of House Republicans may be filled with political outsiders, but the young new Member representing Arizona's 3rd congressional district isn't one of them.
Ben Quayle spent his early youth in the halls of Congress with his famous father, Dan.
In fact just 24 hours after getting the keys to his new House office, photos of his family in and around the Capitol are already up.
"One of the biggest pieces of advice he gave me was stick to your core principles, never apologize for them and never waiver from them. If you do that then at the end of the day you can look yourself in the eye and at the end of the day your constituents will always know where you're going to be," said Quayle during an interview in his office.
There is some karma in his location. Quayle's new congressional office was once occupied by then Congressman Al Gore who, like Quayle's dad, went on to be Vice President.
The 34 year-old Quayle may have an establishment name, but he talks and sounds like any other new GOP lawmaker, vowing to "knock the hell out of the place."
"I think that's what is needed to be done and it looks like on November 2nd that's what the Republican party really did," he said.
"We have some 87 new Republican faces here in the House and I think a lot of people got into office and got elected because a lot of people got frustrated with who was representing them and now that is going to change," said Quayle.
During his primary campaign in a crowded GOP field, Quayle aired a television ad calling President Obama the "worst president in history."
He says he still stands by that, but does give the president kudos for compromises he made with Republicans during the lame-duck Congress.
"I do like the way that he is starting to move more toward the center and getting away from the ideological bent that he was going through when he had massive majorities on the Democratic side in the House and Senate," said Quayle.
The issue that Republicans across the board vow to tackle is government spending. Like other Republicans, however, Quayle is reluctant to give specifics about what should be cut.
"We have to go through look at every agency, look at all the programs. There is a lot of duplicity within the federal government with programs which are not performing. We've got to cut those." he said
Still, he did warn that there may be cuts his constituents won't like.
"Some people are not going to be happy about it but the problems that we have in the short and the long term are too important to deal with, too important to our long term fiscal outlook to not start making those difficult decisions now," he said.
Like other newly elected Republicans, Quayle understands there are high expectations among GOP voters that the new House Republican majority delivers on its promises.
"I think that the Republican leadership has learned from the mistakes that were made by the class of 94'," said Quayle.
