Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will join Bernie Sanders in a one-hour town hall event Monday hosted by Fox News Channel on the eve of Tuesday’s Michigan primary at Detroit’s Gem Theatre.

Clinton and Sanders will answer questions from Fox News anchor Bret Baier during Baier’s “Special Report” show at 6 p.m. Monday.

Baier had said Thursday that Clinton could not attend the event because of a “scheduling conflict.”

But late Friday, Fox News announced Clinton has agreed to join Sanders at the event in front of an audience of Michigan voters.

Clinton hasn’t appeared on the Fox cable news network in two years since a 2014 joint interview with Baier and Greta Van Susteren to promote her 2014 book.

Fox News will replay the Sanders-Clinton town hall show at 11 p.m. Monday.

Fox News hosted Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate at the Fox Theatre.

Sanders’ participation in Monday’s forum marks the first candidate event Fox News has done with one of the Democratic candidates this election cycle.

Clinton and Sanders are campaigning in southeast Michigan on Saturday ahead of Sunday night’s 8 p.m. debate in Flint that will be televised on CNN.

Sanders is planning a rally Saturday night at Macomb Community College’s southern campus in Warren.

Clinton will attend the Michigan Democratic Party’s pre-debate reception Saturday night at the MGM Grand casino and hotel in Detroit.

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Detroit midday to kickoff an event for campaign volunteers at noon at the AFSCME Council 25 labor union’s state headquarters on Lafayette.
