Autosuggest results not showing

I'm using the autosuggest plugin to search a DB table of cities via PHP / AJAX. When I start typing in my text box, I can see via Firebug Console that results get returned in proper JSON format (sample below). The only problem is that they do not appear on the page. The div that is supposed to hold the results is there but stays empty, despite the fact that that search results are being outputted in proper format. So, AFAIK the problem is not the PHP part.

How can I debug this?

Returned JSON sample:
[{"response":"Brussels (Brussels, Belgium)","id":"3406_24"},{"response":"Brussels (Ontario, Canada)","id":"3451_43"},{"response":"Brush (Colorado, United States)","id":"21596_254"},{"response":"Brussels (Illinois, United States)","id":"21602_254"},{"response":"Brusly (Louisiana, United States)","id":"21601_254"},{"response":"Brusett (Montana, United States)","id":"21595_254"},{"response":"Brushton (New York, United States)","id":"21600_254"},{"response":"Brush Valley (Pennsylvania, United States)","id":"21599_254"},{"response":"Brush Creek (Tennessee, United States)","id":"21597_254"},{"response":"Brush Prairie (Washington, United States)","id":"21598_254"},{"response":"Brussels (Wisconsin, United States)","id":"21603_254"}]


`$("input#city").autoSuggest("http://localhost:8888/kms/survey/search_city", {

selectedItemProp: "response", 
selectedValuesProp: "id", 
searchObjProps: "response",
