Ask folks how long they've lived here, they look at their watches.

Bob Dole may have declared California the state where he'll make his campaign stand, but it's also high noon for the Republican presidential nominee across the border in Arizona. Normally, Democratic presidential candidates would treat Arizona as the forbidding political desert it has been for them since 1948.

Some Arizona Republicans are turning on their elder statesman. Still smarting from former Sen. Barry Goldwater's unprecedented endorsement this fall of a Democratic congressional candidate, a number of Republicans want to strip his name from the party's state headquarters. Jay Nenninger said he and several fellow GOP members believe Goldwater's name should no longer grace the central office of a party they feel he has betrayed.

Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, trying to distance herself from an embarrassing political episode in Arizona, said Wednesday that she regretted having sent a letter to a Republican activist suggesting the high court had endorsed the notion that "this is a Christian nation." Supporters of impeached former Gov. Evan Mecham cited O'Connor's letter in obtaining the Arizona Republican Party's adoption of a resolution proclaiming America as a "Christian nation."

One by one, they came up to the podium at the state Republican Party convention. Arizona Sen.
