Former Governor Ronald Reagan (R-CA) and former CIA director George H.W. Bush participated in a debate for the 1980 Republican presidential nomination. The debate took place in Houston, Texas, 10 days before the Texas primary. Governor Reagan went on to win the primary with 53 percent of the vote on his way to securing his party’s nomination. He then picked Mr. Bush as his running mate at the Republican convention later that summer. The Reagan-Bush ticket won 44 states in the 1980 general election, defeating incumbents President Jimmy Carter and Vice President Walter Mondale.
