Every time a politician calls himself maverick, the ghost of Barry Goldwater likely scoffs. No one could buck the party line like the one-time presidential candidate and Arizona native. Though he passed away in 1998 at the age of 89, Goldwaters legacy as a five-term state senator still looms large.
Arizona Jewish Theatre Company presents a staged reading of the play Mr. Conservative: The Story of Barry Goldwater, which explores the limited government champion's ups and downs as the political spectrum shifted during his career.
