This Sunday on “State of the Union”— the presidential campaign is in full swing, and we’re covering every angle.
First, an interview with Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry. After deciding to stay in the race and compete in South Carolina, how well must he do in the Palmetto state to continue his campaign? We’ll ask him.
