The state is looking to buy something a little bit out of the ordinary — a statute of Barry Goldwater.

The Arizona Historical Advisory Commission has issued a request for proposals to create a Goldwater statue to be placed in the National Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol.

The Goldwater statue will be one of two statues representing individuals from Arizona.

In government-speak, the state says it is looking for a “commemorative, site-specific sculpture” of the former senator and 1964 Republican presidential nominee. It will be purchased with donated money.

The seven-page procurement notice can be found online with the State Procurement Office at www.spo.az.us
