Younger Democrats rubbed elbows with party elders on Thursday night to hear secretary of state candidate Terry Goddard speak at a midtown hotel.
Some in the audience at the Viscount Suites were too young to remember his father, former Arizona Gov. Sam Goddard, but the former attorney general still spent a few minutes talking about his dear old dad.
One of stories Goddard likes to tell was when he argued with his father against using a roadrunner in campaign materials.
He said he now realizes the desert bird eats snakes and, politically speaking, there needs to be a few less snakes in the grass.
