This Sunday...

A dead heat between President Obama and Governor Romney as they go back and forth over jobs and the economy.  And President Obama puts Congress on the spot with a lengthy to-do list, so is he using the Senate floor to road-test his fall campaign strategy?

We’ll discuss it with the number two Democrat in the Senate- Dick Durbin, and the man charged with electing more Republicans to the Senate, Senator John Cornyn.

We’ll also look at the President’s evolution on gay marriage and how it will play in the battleground states. Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is pushing for Civil Unions in his state.  He’ll join us with the details.

Plus, Mitt Romney delivers the commencement address at Liberty University.  Will he use the opportunity to build bridges to Christian conservatives?  Tony Perkins and Gary Bauer will be here to judge Mitt Romney’s evangelical tightrope.

And the nation’s spy chief wants to know who leaked the existence of an undercover agent working for the U.S. in Yemen, and a POW’s parents reveal the U.S. has been negotiating with the Taliban. We’ll talk about that and more with the leaders of Congress's Homeland Security committees Independent Senator Joe Lieberman and Republican Congressman Peter King.

Check it out Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.
