This Week's Trivia Question:

  Until this presidential candidate did it, it was tradition that candidates did not accept the nomination at their party’s convention in person.  Which candidate was the first to travel to the convention and accept the nomination in person; was it: (1) Woodrow Wilson in 1912; (2) Warren Harding in 1920; or (3) Franklin Roosevelt in 1932?  

On July 2, 1932, then-New York Governor Franklin Roosevelt made history by flying to Chicago to accept the nomination in person at the Democratic National Convention where his acceptance speech contained the famous line: “I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for the American people.”
