Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Monday will host a one-hour Democratic presidential town hall with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The event, which will be presented live at the Gem Theatre in Detroit at 6 p.m. ET, comes one day before Michigan’s primary.

Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs told The New York Times there had been talk about having Republican front-runner Donald Trump also appear at the event. Briggs said Sanders welcomed the idea but that Trump turned down the invitation.

Initially Clinton's campaign said she could not attend because of a "conflict in her campaign schedule."

Monday’s event marks the first Democratic town hall on Fox News for the 2016 presidential election cycle.

It will also be Sanders’ first appearance on “Special Report.”
