1988 Presidential Debate

In 1987 the parties announced the creation of the Commission on Presidential Debates. LWVEF was chosen to sponsor the last debate of 1988. Many rules and restrictions were placed on the format so that LWVEF was unable to agree to participate. In a press release, Nancy Neuman, then LWVUS President, stated that the League had “no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.”
