Sen. Amy Klobuchar to do Fox News town hall

Sen. Amy Klobuchar will participate in a Fox News Channel town hall meeting from Wisconsin in May. The network announced its plans with Klobuchar on Wednesday. The Minnesota senator, who’s seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, will be guest of honor at the Fox News broadcast from Milwaukee on May 8.


Fox News is unpopular with many Democrats given the rightward slant of many of its on-air personalities. The Democratic National Committee decided not to hold any of its upcoming candidate debates on Fox. The Klobuchar forum will be hosted by two of the network’s news anchors, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.


Klobuchar previously appeared on a CNN town hall from New Hampshire in February. Several news outlets reported this week that another Democratic candidate, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, is also in talks with Fox News for a town hall. Klobuchar and Buttigieg are the two major Midwestern candidates in the race at the moment, though Buttigieg has shot up in recent polls while Klobuchar has remained in single digits.

At a Minneapolis news conference on Sunday, Klobuchar welcomed Buttigieg to the race on the day he officially joined it. She said there was room for more than one candidate from the Midwest, a region expected to be pivotal in next year’s election.

““I welcome Mayor Pete to the race,” Klobuchar said on Sunday. “I think it’s good we don’t just have just one candidate from the heartland. That sounds kind of lonely.”
