Howard Schultz to be featured in Fox News town hall

Fox News announced Tuesday it will host a town hall with former Starbucks CEO and potential 2020 presidential candidate Howard Schultz. 

The event will be broadcast live from Kansas City, Mo., on April 4 and will be co-anchored by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum starting at 6:30 p.m. EDT.

Schultz has faced strong backlash from Democrats after saying he is exploring an Independent bid for the White House in 2020. He took part in a CNN town hall last month.

The Fox event comes after Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez announced earlier this month that it barred Fox News from hosting any of its 12 scheduled primary debates. 

Several declared and presumptive Democratic presidential candidates have recently appeared on Fox News, including Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), as well as former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii). 

 
Schultz also appeared on Fox News in February and, most recently, for an interview with “Your World” anchor Neil Cavuto.
