UH OH! Another 2020 Dem will defy DNC brass to have a town hall on Fox News
DNC chair Tom Perez has previously made it clear that he’s not interested in having any Dem debates on Fox News:
Just to be clear, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.

Perez was also on Fox News recently and he asked Bill Hemmer to have a word with the network’s executives so it becomes a more attractive outlet for Dems who are running for president:

As for a certain candidate running for the Dem nomination, he decided to give Fox News a chance, and the viewers were certainly there:
Thank you for watching & for making last night the most watched town hall on any network so far. Even running from 6:30-7:30pm https://t.co/OM5QrgKXoM

It looks like one other Dem is willing to let down Tom Perez and go for it:

Now they're lining up. Fox just announced an Amy Klobuchar town hall for early next month. Maybe Bernie proved it's a good idea to reach the largest cable news audience?

It’s becoming a “thing” now!
