South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg will be hold a televised town hall in Fresno, his campaign and MSNBC announced on-air Wednesday.
The town hall, hosted by MSNBC talker Chris Matthews, will be held on June 3 at 4 p.m. Pacific.
Matthews teased the announcement on Wednesday’s broadcast of his program.
“I don’t know why it’s Fresno, but it’s a long trip and it’s gonna be worth it,” Matthews said.
Lis Smith, Buttigieg’s communications director, slyly rebuked Matthews for the dig at Fresno, tweeting: “We embrace talking to folks everywhere – no matter where they are or where they consume their news.”
The Sun has reached out to Buttigieg’s campaign for more details on the town hall and will update this story.
