12 images Created 29 Aug 2012
Barry Goldwater is a legend in Arizona political circles. The conservative Goldwater represented Arizona in the US Senate for years. He ran for President in 1964. His name is still invoked in Arizona circles the way Ronald Reagan's is nationally. On Wednesday, members of Barry Goldwater's family "reached across the aisle" and endorsed Richard Carmona, the Democratic candidate for US Senate. Carmona is facing Jeff Flake, a Republican from Mesa, in November's general election for the seat now held by retiring Senator Jon Kyl. Whoever wins will occupy the seat once held by Barry Goldwater.
