PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Yavapai County Republicans are remembering Barry Goldwater’s tradition of launching his political campaigns in Prescott.

According to the Daily Courier (https://bit.ly/W701UE ), the Yavapai County Republican Party plans a free public celebration on the 50th anniversary of Goldwater’s Sept. 3 kickoff in Prescott of his 1964 presidential campaign

He’d actually begun the tradition of campaign kickoffs in Prescott in 1952 during his first campaign for the U.S. Senate.

The county party’s remembrance rally will be held Wednesday evening in the ballroom of the Hotel St. Michael across from the courthouse steps.

Goldwater’s son, Barry Goldwater Jr., will share memories of his father’s life in politics and Yavapai County Republican Party Vice Chair L.G. Mace will display his extensive collection of Goldwater campaign memorabilia.
