Sen. Amy Klobuchar will do a live Fox News town hall from Milwaukee

She's the second Democratic candidate to commit to such an event on the network.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar will continue her 2020 presidential bid with a stop at Fox News.

On May 8, she'll hold a town hall on Fox News live from Milwaukee, with "Special Report" host Bret Baier and "The Story" anchor Martha MacCallum hosting the event.

Klobuchar will be the second Democratic presidential candidate to appear on the network in this capacity, after Sen. Bernie Sanders did so earlier this week. His town hall brought in nearly 2.6 million viewers, Fox News says.

It also brought controversy from fellow Democrats, some of whom argued it was legitimizing a network that treats conservative officials much more kindly than liberals, Huffington Post reports.

Sanders countered, saying the event would let him speak directly to conservative voters who may never hear from him directly otherwise.

For Klobuchar, who is pitching herself as a more moderate, Midwest candidate, the Fox News town hall could reach on-the-fence voters who are looking for a middle ground candidate.

More Democrats could follow. Huffington Post says reps for Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Rep. Eric Swalwell (California) and Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio) have all expressed interest in doing a Fox News town hall.

Klobuchar's will air live on May 8, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. central time
