Fox News to host town hall meeting with Pete Buttigieg

NEW YORK (AP) — South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is the latest Democratic presidential candidate to agree to hold a town hall meeting on Fox News Channel.

The May 19 event will be broadcast live from Claremont, New Hampshire. Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace will moderate.

Buttigieg is a Rhodes Scholar and openly gay Afghanistan veteran serving his second term as mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

He's risen in polls since launching an exploratory committee in January, thanks largely to his performance in televised interviews, including a March CNN town hall. Buttigieg formally announced his candidacy last week.

Nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned in for a Fox town hall last week with Sen. Bernie Sanders, making it the highest-rated of the election cycle. Sen. Amy Klobuchar will participate in a May 8 town hall.

How can a person live with themselves being for late term abortion. I encourage you to look up Gianna Jesson. She survived her mother trying to abort her. She speaks about it all over the world!! Seriously, look her up. She has done speeches in South Bend. How can Peter judge about a woman's right? Where is the baby's right? Well, he doesn't have a say, he's not a woman. Or wait maybe he is! Plain and simple it's murder you Koolaid drinker!!
