Bret Baier to Moderate Democratic Town Hall

By Mark Joyella 

Ahead of tonight’s Republican presidential debate in Detroit, Fox News has announced it will host a one-hour Democratic presidential forum with Bernie Sanders on Monday.

The forum, to be held in front of a live audience in Detroit just one day before the state’s primary, will be moderated by Bret Baier. This marks the first Democratic town hall on Fox News this campaign cycle, and Sanders’ first appearance on Baier’s show, Special Report (6 p.m. ET).

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton will not attend. The network says she was invited to participate, but a “conflict in her campaign schedule” prohibited her from appearing.
