While recapping Thursday night’s Democratic debate, Fox host Bret Baier put the question to DNC Chair and congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Why not let us host one?
“You’ve had six debates so far and I think you have four more on the books,” Baier said. “How about letting the Fox News debate team handle one of those?”
The Democrats indeed have four more debates planned — three of which do not have sponsors yet.
Schultz laughed and said, “You know, we have got a lot on our plate and I’m really happy to be here with you on your network — there aren’t a whole lot of Democrats who come on, and I always look forward to our conversations, Bret, and look forward to sparring with you and some of your hosts all the way through the campaign.”
The Republicans have four debates to go, out of a total of 12 during this year’s primary — and each one has a sponsor already. Fox has hosted two so far — which have been the two highest-rated telecasts in the network’s history — and it is scheduled to host a third in March. (It’s perhaps worth noting that MSNBC did not sponsor a GOP debate this year or during the 2012 primary.)
