With the question lingering if Fox News would host the democratic presidential candidates, Debbie Wasserman Schultz cleared the air. Fox News anchor asked Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz whether his network could host a future debate with the Democratic presidential candidates.

Her response was kind of discouraging.

“You know, we have got a lot  on our plate and I’m really happy to be here with you on your network,” Wasserman Schultz told Fox’s Bret Baier after the Hillary Clinton-Bernie Sanders debate in Milwaukee Thursday. “There aren’t a whole lot of Democrats who come on (Fox), 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 Democrats accusing Fox News for being on the side of the conservatives

Many Democrats don’t like Fox News, because of what they tagged the network’s conservative as biased, a network who only has the interest of the conservatives.

Fox officials say they have proved their bona fides by asking tough questions during the Republican debates it has sponsored.

Baier told Wasserman Schultz: “So you’re saying there is a  chance?”

Wasserman Schultz: “I’m saying that I’m here, ready to talk to you about the issues and will do so all the way through this election cycle.”

Baier: “I’ll take the hope part of that.”

Fox News says its executives have attempted to acquire a Democratic debate since May 2015.

Fox has not hosted a Democratic debate since 2004.
