Fox News to host Klobuchar town hall next week

Fox News announced Wednesday it will host a town hall with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) on Feb. 27 in Raleigh, N.C.

“As Super Tuesday quickly approaches, we are looking forward to hosting Sen. Klobuchar for a second Fox News Channel town hall as she makes her case for becoming the Democratic presidential nominee to the largest cable news audience in the country,” announced Jay Wallace, president and executive editor of Fox News Media. “We are confident we will provide our millions of viewers with an informative and thoughtful conversation.”

The special will be co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum.

The network has done eight town hall events for the current presidential election cycle. Its most recent featured former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg last month ahead of the Iowa caucuses and was moderated by “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace.

A Fox News town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in April 2019 was the highest-rated town hall of any candidate on the three cable news networks, delivering 2.55 million viewers.
