The town halls will take place Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. respectively, CNN announced Friday.
Both candidates joined the crowded field of 2020 candidates in May but have failed to gain significant traction in polling.

It’s time to get money out of politics and make government work again to ensure a fair shot for every American.”
A RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Bullock polling at 0.5 percent and de Blasio polling at 0.3 percent.
De Blasio appeared in both Democratic debates so far, while Bullock appeared in the more recent debates. Neither candidate has yet qualified for the next month’s debates.
The network has held 25 town halls with presidential candidates so far this year.
De Blasio and Bullock are among nearly two dozen people vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
