First Carter-Ford Debate

Jimmy Carter and President Gerald Ford squared off in the first of three nationally televised debates, this one in Philadelphia. There were some sharp exchanges, with both candidates attacking the other on unemployment, tax policy, and the role of the federal government. Virtually everything said was a repeat of campaign speeches. The debate was delayed for 27 minutes due to a sound system failure.
