For the second time in a week, a Fox News anchor is trying to convince a top Democrat to debate on Fox.
Between Fox News and Fox Business, there have been four GOP debates, but none among the Democrats. So on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Bernie Sanders: “Would you be willing to participate in a Democratic debate on Fox News?”
“If we went – were clear to understand what the guidelines were and what the rules were. And to make sure that they were fair, and the DNC was in favor of it, I would have no objection,” Sanders said. “If I could have a guarantee and knew who the questioners were, and if the framework for the debate was fair, I would have no objection,” he added.
“I’ll take that as a definite maybe,” said Wallace. This was Wallace’s first interview with Sanders since the Vermont Senator announced his candidacy.
Last week, Bret Baier asked DNC chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz whether she’d allow for a Democratic debate on Fox News. She was noncommittal.
