Presidential Candidates Debate Former Governor Jimmy Carter (D-GA) and President Ford met in Philadelphia for the first of three presidential debates prior to the 1976 presidential election. While standing at separate podia, the two candidates responded to questions on domestic issues and economic policy from a panel of journalists. The debate took place before a live audience in the Walnut Street Theater, and ended abruptly after the loss of pool audio from the debate. The two candidates continued to stand at their podia as correspondents interviewed campaign officials and discussed the progress of the debate. The debate was moderated by Edwin Newman. Other panelists included Frank Reynolds, James Gannon, and Elizabeth Drew.

Each candidate was questioned in turn and given three minutes to respond. Panelists were allowed one follow-up question. The candidates were given two minutes for rebuttals and three minutes for closing statements. close
