I was in California when Goldwater was a presidential candidate. I hope he chose not to endorse some of the Christian conservatives there. However, some certainly endorsed him. Several radio stations seemed to exist solely to raise money, tout Goldwater, and damn most of the World to eternal fire and brimstone. It tainted Goldwater by association, even if he may have rejected their stance..
