In a bitter primary battle that pitted two freshman House Republicans against each other, it was Rep. Dave Schweikert who came out on top Tuesday, besting Rep. Ben Quayle in the fight for Arizona's 6 th Congressional District. The contest was the product of a redistricting process that favored Democrats, forcing the two Republicans to fight over a single seat.  The result was a nasty campaign that caused some Republican heavyweights to rush to Quayle's defense. But it clearly wasn't enough.

President Obama says that if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling by Aug. 2, the consequences will be dire. A long list of economists and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce agree.
