OC GOP Central Committee Meeting Last Night

Last night at the OC GOP Central Committee Meeeting, I had a chance to meet Barry Goldwater Jr. I had read his father's book "Conscience of a Conservative". I wanted to meet Barry Jr who was a Congressman in his own right. when I found out he was coming to OC, I wanted to make sure I had a chance to meet him. Mr Goldwater gave a great speech about his life in politics and what it was like to grow up in the Goldwater family. He also has a new book out called Pure Goldwater which is a series of diary, personal journal entries and letters of his late father all compiled in this book. I got an autographed copy and photo w/him as well. It was also cool to talk him about his endorsement of Ron Paul for President. He served with Ron in Congress back in the 70s. He made a point to say that he was now on board in endorsing John McCain. I wouldn't go that far yet, but he did make the Ron Paul activists think last night about this decision.
