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.
The event "will focus on Schultz’s potential candidacy and the issues he plans to tackle," according to the network.
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 PerezThomas Edward PerezClinton’s top five vice presidential picks Government social programs: Triumph of hope over evidence Labor’s 'wasteful spending and mismanagement” at Workers’ Comp MORE announced earlier this month that it barred Fox News from hosting any of its 12 scheduled primary debates.
