ABC News announced this morning Hillary Clinton has rescheduled her Good Morning America town hall for this coming Thursday – two days after the New York primary. Clinton will address questions from voters in the audience, via remote across the country and on social media.
Last week — less than 24 hours after the news division announced that Clinton would participate in a GMA town hall with George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts the morning after debating Bernie Sanders in Brooklyn — the Democratic front-runner canceled, due to a “scheduling issue.” Clinton was to have been GMA town hall-ing as her Dem rival was attending a Vatican City economic conference and shortly before heading to Dottyville on the Pacific for two fundraiser dinners, which raised what the co-host George Clooney called an “obscene” amount of money.
Meanwhile, GOP No. 2 Ted Cruz appeared his morning at his GMA town hall, as originally scheduled, forecasting the state of Republican affairs before the party convention “I’ll have a ton of delegates, he’ll have a ton of delegates, and it’s going to be a battle in Cleveland to see who can get to a majority,” he told Stephanopoulos and Roberts. “You can’t win the nomination without earning a majority of the delegates elected by the people. I believe Donald’s highest total will be on that first ballot, and he will go steadily down because Donald cannot win. And we don’t want to nominate someone who’s a loser.”
