A statue of a former Arizona Senator may be displayed at the United States Capitol.

Arizona's Historical Advisory commission is looking for artists to create a statue honoring Barry Goldwater.

Goldwater was elected in 1952 and served as a leader in the conservative movement.  He retired in 1987.

Private donations are expected to fund the project that could cost up to $500,000.
