A campaign spokesperson Mayor Pete Buttigieg told The Hill on April 16, 2016; the Democratic presidential candidate is having a discussion with Fox News about having a town hall on the station.
Buttigieg’s popularity has been rising in the field of those running for the Democratic nomination. The mayor has raised more money than Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)
Buttigieg is also placing third in the popularity poll, with Joe Biden who has not announced his presidential run placing first.
In 2019, Thirty-seven-year-old Buttigieg was the only Democratic candidate to make an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
Buttigieg, and Oxford Rhodes Scholar and graduate of Harvard University and Afghanistan War veteran have earned praise and support from both those on the left and right side for his excellent interview skills.
He is also commended for the way he had become a serious contender for 2020 Democratic nomination when two months ago, he was unknown.
Bernie Sanders appeared on a Fox News Town Hall on April 15 hosted by news anchors Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Buttigieg’s outreach to the network and Saunder’s recent appearance comes after the chairman of the Democratic National Committee Tom Perez said the Democratic party would not hold any general election or primary debates on Fox News.
