Two Democratic Presidential Candidates to Appear Night Before Michigan Primary
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will appear in a town hall forum in Detroit hosted by Fox News on Monday, the night before before the Michigan primary. Clinton has not appeared on the conservative cable network since 2014, a year before announcing her White House run.
The forum will be held at Detroit's Gem Theater, and will beÂ hosted by Fox News' Bret Baier at 6:00 PM EST.
Clinton initially had declined, citing scheduling conflicts, but later agreed. Fox News' Chris Wallace "called outÂ members of Clinton's team last month, saying they hadn't responded to multiple requests to schedule an appearance on his show," The Hill reports.
Clinton is currently running almost 18 points ahead of Sanders, the Real Clear Politics average shows.
On Twitter, the partisan controversy set in immediately:
