If anyone caught Schwarzenegger’s 2004 GOP speech at the primaries, he tells the story about coming to America and the 1st political debate he saw was Nixon vs Mcgovern (I think it was Mcgovern)..
He asked the person beside him in broken English who were those people. The other guy explained. Ahnold then says..
‘That Democrat guy kept talking about communism which I escaped from. I cant stand his politics. This Nixon guy was talking about freedom this and that, to work hard, reach your goals..from now I;ll be a Republican.’
As with most things Arnold, that was a cute little campaign story cooked up by Arnold and his handlers.
All lies. There was no debate.

The Nixon-Humphrey Presidential Debate Never Took Place
