PHOENIX — Cathi Herrod and her daughter both want to change the world, but in very different ways.
From her perch at the Phoenix-based Center for Arizona Policy, Herrod has commanded virtually unparalleled influence at the state Capitol on social conservative issues.
For more than a decade, Herrod has fought any legislation that she views as giving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents civil rights or recognition in our society.
So it comes as a surprise to learn that Herrod has a daughter who is gay, is married to a woman and is pursuing her own progressive agenda far from Arizona, in New York City.
Reporter Elizabeth Whitman of the Phoenix New Times revealed the connection in a story last week, and she shares what she learned on this weekend's "Sunday Square Off."
"Sunday Square Off" airs at 8 a.m. Sundays on 12 News, after NBC's "Meet the Press," with moderator Chuck Todd.
