On Thursday, October 24th, Newsmax TV and League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) will co-host a two-hour Presidential Town Hall meeting featuring top Democratic candidates vying for the party’s nomination.
The LULAC-Newsmax Town Hall will include candidates Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Tulsi Gabbard and Julian Castro. The program will air live from the Des Moines Events Center in Iowa.
The Town Hall will begin at 8 p.m. ET, and Newsmax will air a pre-Town Hall starting at 7 p.m. ET. The program will open with a message from Domingo Garcia, LULAC’s national president. The co-moderators for the Town Hall will be Newsmax TV’s John Bachman and Spectrum News 1’s Annette Garcia.
This Presidential Town Hall will focus on issues of importance to all Americans and the impact policies will have for Hispanic voters in Iowa and across the nation.
The event is expected to draw more than 800 people, and will be attended by more than 500 eligible and registered Latino voters from the Des Moines area. Iowa is the home to an estimated 73,000 Latino voters.
Because none of the questions directed to the candidates are known in advance, the Presidential Town Hall promises to be lively and unpredictable, and a potential game-changer in the Democrats’ quest for their nominee.
Among the topics expected to be discussed are: immigration, the economy, health care and impeachment.
“Newsmax is excited to join LULAC for this Presidential Town Hall. We expect the candidates will be fielding a lot of tough questions from the Des Moines audience,” said Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy.
The participation of LULAC — the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization with the mission of empowering Hispanic Americans and building strong Latino communities — comes as the group has made voter registration a top priority and works to identify and register Hispanic voters across the state.
LULAC, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is made up of 1,000 councils around the United States and U.S. territory Puerto Rico.
LULAC’s broadcast partner is Newsmax TV, America’s fastest-growing cable news channel.
Newsmax TV is now carried in more than 70 million cable homes nationwide — including on DirecTV, Comcast Xfinity, Dish, U-Verse, Fios, Charter (Spectrum), Optimum, Suddenlink and more than three dozen other systems.
Each month Newsmax reaches more than 30 million Americans online through sites like Newsmax.com, in print and through its new TV channel.
