Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is set to appear on the O’Reilly Factor, Friday.

Bill O’Reilly, known for his aggressive style, posted a question to his website that read: “Why does Vermont continue to elect a socialist senator? We'll talk with Bernie Sanders to find out on the next O'Reilly Factor.”

In an email Friday morning, Jeff Frank, spokesperson for Sen. Sanders (I-Vt.), said he and O’Reilly are scheduled to tape this afternoon.  

O’Reilly blasted Vermont several years ago after a judge handed down a 60-day sentence to a man who sexually abused a child.

The show will air at 8 p.m. (ET) on Fox News.
