South Bend, Ind., mayor and Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg is in talks with Fox News about appearing in a town hall event, The Hill reported Tuesday.
An unnamed spokesperson for Buttigieg told the news outlet “reaching out to the Fox audience is something we intend to do.”
The intention was announced a day after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., became the first 2020 Democratic candidate to go onto Fox for a town hall event. Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez announced ast month Fox would be barred from hosting any of the party's primary debates.
Buttigieg has been gaining attention in his long-shot bid; an Emerson College poll released Monday showed Sanders at 29% among Democratic respondents, former Vice President Joe Biden at 24%, Buttigieg third with 9%, Sen. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke each with 8%, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., at 7%.
