Yesterday Jeff Flake won the GOP Primary in Arizona, to become the party's candidate for the U.S. senate.
Today former Sen. Barry Goldwater's daughter, Joanne, and her daughter   CC, endorsed  Dr. Richard Carmona, Arizona Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.

According to the article linked below,  Goldwater's daughter and granddaughter publicly  endorsed   Carmona because of his 'honest, independent bipartisanship and strong support for women's rights, particularly abortion rights.'

from the website AZ Women's Heritage Trail I learned that Barry Goldwater's wife, Peggy Johnson Goldwater  and others worked with Margaret Sanger in 1937 to organize the first family planning clinic in Phoenix. She continued to aid the organization when it became Planned Parenthood of Phoenix in the 1940s and later Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern Arizona. She actively supported this cause until her death in 1985.

Flake ,of course has voted to deny funding for Planned Parenthood in AZ and is consistently on the wrong side of women's reproductive rights issues. Who knew , in trying to destroy Planned Parenthood , he was voting against a such a venerable  Republican institution ?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
