Last week’s question was: When was the first time Democratic presidential candidates ever took part in a televised debate — before the nomination was decided — and who were they?
The answer? 1956, between Adlai Stevenson and Estes Kefauver, held in Miami just prior to the Florida primary. It was aired on WTVJ and moderated by ABC’s Quincy Howe. Stevenson went on to win the nomination (for the second time in a row) but left the decision on his running mate to the delegates — and they chose Kefauver.
