Report: 2020 Dems Consider Fox News Town Halls After Ratings Windfall for Bernie Sanders

A political risk by Bernie Sanders and Fox News appears to have paid off with big ratings.????The Democratic socialist and 2020 candidate appeared on a town hall run by the news network with a largely conservative viewership.

????Whether it was the thought of the Vermont Senator in a figurative lion’s den or a clamoring for new ideas…????...the clash of ideological differences attracted the eyeballs of 2.5 million viewers, according to early Nielsen ratings.????The Daily Beast reports that this was the most watched town hall-like event in the still young 2020 election season…????...surpassing the previous mark set by Kamala Harris on CNN which drew 1.95 million viewers.????According to the Daily Beast, other 2020 hopefuls are possibly looking to follow in Sanders’ footsteps…????...as new entrants Tim Ryan and Eric Swallwell...Julian Castro...and Pete Buttigieg are each reportedly interested in participating in a similar town hall event on Fox News.????The Sanders town hall took place weeks after the Democratic National Committee decided it would not allow Fox News to hold any of the party’s official debates for this election.
