Ron Paul to be honored with “Barry Goldwater Award”

The 2012 Conservative Leadership Conference announced today that Texas Congressman Ron Paul has been selected as this year’s recipient of the event’s Barry Goldwater Award, named after the late “Conscience of a Conservative” United States senator from Arizona who was the GOP’s presidential nominee in 1964.

“While Sen. Goldwater ‘lost’ in 1964,” said Chuck Muth, president of Citizen Outreach and co-host of the annual event, “his candidacy launched the modern-day conservative movement which eventually helped elect Ronald Reagan president and returned Republicans to majority status in Congress after 40 years wandering in the political wilderness.”
