(Washington, DC & Austin, TX) – CNN has partnered with South by Southwest® (SXSW®) to bring its presidential town halls – a signature of the network’s election coverage – to Austin Texas for the SXSW Conference and Festivals on March 10, 2019.

Moderated by CNN Anchor Jake Tapper and Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash, the program lineup will feature three presidential candidates: Rep. John Delaney at 7 p.m. ET, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard at 8 p.m. ET and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 9 p.m. ET.

A unique audience for a town hall, SXSW has attracted the world’s most innovative and creative minds from industries like interactive and digital media, film and music since it was founded in 1987. This year, those influencers will join a group of Texas voters to ask presidential hopefuls about their vision for the nation.
