This was the trivia question that appeared in this week’s Political Junkie show:
Donald Trump, who often hints at a run for public office but never goes through with it, says he hasn’t ruled out a run for governor of New York next year against Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo. Who was the last person elected governor of New York without ever having held elective office previously?

Last week’s question was … In the wake of the decision by Mississippi’s Thad Cochran to seek a 7th term next year, who was the LAST senator defeated in a bid for a 7th term? The answer: Dick Lugar. The Indiana Republican, first elected in 1976, was beaten in the 2012 primary by Richard Mourdock.
And the randomly chosen winner to that one was … Jon Moltmann of Milwaukie, Ore.
