Late Friday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton agreed to join Sen. Bernie Sanders at the Bret Baier-moderated town hall at 6 PM ET, from the Gem Theatre in Detroit. It will mark Clinton’s first appearance on FNC since her 2014 book tour.
The two Dem candidates just last night appeared on stage together, for the CNN-hosted Dem debate in Flint, MI. Viewers saw them joust over the mental health of a certain GOP candidate, the auto-industry bailout, Clinton’s Wall Street connections and more. FNC has a different audience, of course; we’ll see tomorrow which network gets the bigger crowd.
Initially, FNC announced Sanders only for tonight’s clambake, saying Clinton had been invited to participate but declined, citing a conflict in her campaign schedule. Friday she changed her mind, or her schedule. This will mark the first Democratic town hall on Fox News during this election cycle and Sanders’ first appearance on Baier’s Special Report. FNC has tried, but so far failed, to secure a Democratic debate this election cycle.
