On Tuesday, billionaire presidential candidate, Howard Schultz, will sit down with CNN’s Poppy Harlow for his first town hall in Houston, Texas.
The former CEO of Starbucks rolled out his campaign in a bumpy start by announcing that he would be running as an independent candidate. This has left many to believe that he would divide the anti-Trump vote and push the president to an easy victory in 2020.
“Thank you @PoppyHarlowCNN and @CNN for hosting next Tuesday night! I look forward to the dialogue and meeting Texans exhilarated by the idea of restoring power to the American people,” he tweeted.
