Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has turned down the offer to participate in a town hall on Fox News, saying she’d take a “hard pass” of the “hate-for-profit racket.”

So far, her fellow 2020 candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have attended Fox News town halls, while South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) are scheduled to in the future.
