In response to a Fox News request to host a Democratic debate, a Democratic official bobbed and weaved, but didn't outrightly refuse, either.
Fox hosted Democratic National Committee chair and Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on their Thursday evening program during which anchor Bret Baier asked her whether she thought one of the Democratic presidential hopefuls could be a “candidate of change.”
At the end of their conversation, Baier posed a provocative question:
“You've had six debates so far and I think you have four more on the books. How about letting the Fox News debate team handle one of those?”
“You know," Wasserman said, "we have got a lot on our plate and I'm really happy to be here with you on your network - there aren't a whole lot of Democrats who come on, 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."
Baier pressed further:
“So you're saying there is a chance?”
Wasserman Schultz replied, “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.”
“Okay, I’ll take the hope part of that,” Baier said.
