Sometimes a presidential ticket will be comprised of two rivals who had been battling each other for the nomination. We’ve seen that several times, notably with Ronald Reagan and George Bush in 1980, and John Kerry and John Edwards in 2004.
Many polls show Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, and Scott Walker, the current governor of Wisconsin, among the leading Republican candidates for 2016. Not that we think a Bush-Walker or a Walker-Bush (or a George-Herbert-Walker-Bush for that matter) ticket is likely. But it does lead to this week’s trivia question: When was the last time a major-party presidential ticket was made up of two governors?
