What is a Goldwater conservative?
As we approach Arizona’s Centennial, Here and Now pays tribute to local legends who have helped shape the state’s identity. State Senate president Steve Pierce, Arizona Republic columnist Bob Robb, and Nick Dranias of the Goldwater institute help us remember Barry Goldwater.
All three men agree that Goldwater stood for personal freedoms, state’s rights, and served as a cornerstone of Arizona’s identity. Dranias says that the people of Arizona, whether they know it or not, live in ways based on Goldwater’s principles to this very day.
