A nationally televised town hall with presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Indiana) will happen at Fresno State.

The event, to be aired live as an episode of MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” is scheduled for June 3 at the Dennis & Cheryl Woods Theatre in the Speech Arts Building.

Information on Eventbrite.com (and linked through the “Hardball” website) notes that doors will open at 2:30 p.m. and close an hour later for the live airing starting at 4 p.m. However, as of 9:30 a.m. Thursday (May 23), the website says the event is sold out and that names are being added to a wait list.

The invitation notes guests must stay on site for the duration of the taping (through 5 p.m.), and seating is first-come, first-served. The event is free. Guests need to pass through security, with certain clothing (political and promotional), large bags, and firearms banned.

Parking on campus will be free. The invitation recommends parking in lots P1, P30 or P31.

Second Candidate to Visit

Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, would be the second Democratic presidential hopeful to visit Fresno. Former HUD secretary Julián Castro (D-Texas) spoke at the Fresno County Democratic Party fundraising dinner May 3.

Could more presidential contenders make their way to the Valley?

The state Democratic Party holds its convention May 31-June 2 in San Francisco. At least seven other contenders will participate in a forum there hosted by MoveOn.org, including U.S. senators Cory Booker (New Jersey), Kamala Harris (California), Bernie Sanders (Vermont), Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts), and Kirsten Gillibrand (New York), along with Castro and former congressman Beto O’Rourke (Texas).
