Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has rejected an invitation by Fox News to appear at a televised town hall.
Warren, who is running for president, acknowledged the invitation in a series of tweets on Tuesday. And she explained why should would not appear at the event.
She wrote: “Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists — it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.”
Meanwhile, former Maryland congressmen John Delaney, who also is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, said he would be happy to take Warren’s place at the town.
He tweeted to Warren: “If you're not using your town hall, I will. Democratic candidates have to campaign everywhere and talk to all voters.”
The Hill noted that Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. have participated in Fox town halls. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is scheduled to appear on May 19.
