BARRY AND HIS FATHER MEET WITH THE HISTORIC REPUBLICAN
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WHO RAN AGAINST F. D. R.
THE USA TODAY REPORTED ON MAY 23, 2004
It was Barry Goldwater, the revered conservative, who convinced Nixon that he must resign or face certain conviction by the Senate. Goldwater delivered his message in person, at the White House, accompanied by Republican congressional leaders.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee likewise put principle above party to cast votes for articles of impeachment. On the eve of his mission, Goldwater told his wife that it might cost him his Senate seat on Election Day. Instead, the courage of Republicans willing to dissociate their party from Nixon helped Ronald Reagan win the presidency six years later, unencumbered by Watergate.
