This Sunday on State of the Union...

With the 2012 presidential race in full swing, we’ll preview Tuesday’s Florida primary where the GOP contenders are fighting for the top spot in the winner-take-all state.

First, Candy sits down with Presidential Candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul who is bypassing the sunshine state.  Nonetheless,  Paul is still polling at 14 percent behind Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.   What's his strategy? We’ll ask him.    

Then, Candy talks to Florida Governor Rick Scott, a conservative Republican who still hasn’t endorsed a candidate; which candidate best fits his state now and in November?

Plus, Sen. Mitch McConnell reacts to President Obama’s State of the Union speech.  We’ll talk to the senator about his plans to get Americans back to work and whether he thinks the payroll tax debate will be resolved.

 And finally,  which party better suits Latino voters?  We'll have a debate with Carlos Gutierrez, a former Bush commerce secretary, and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, an Obama supporter.

 It's this Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.

Fmr. DNI Mike McConnell on the threat of cyber attacks

The US and Cybersecurity: Fmr. Dir. of Nat'l Intelligence Mike McConnell on the danger of cyber attacks on the US. "The nation does not even practice good - what I would call cyber security hygiene. We could eliminate much of it if we just did the basic things, be aware, change passwords, configure our systems appropriately, but we don't."

This Sunday on State of the Union...

With a plunging stock market and woeful unemployment numbers, are we heading toward a double dip recession? Where does the economy go from here? We’ll ask Steve Forbes, the CEO of Forbes Incorporated and Pres. Obama’s former top economic adviser, Larry Summers.

Then, Candy sits down with California Gov. Jerry Brown in his first national interview since his election last year. He says he’s “alarmed” at the state of the country. What is he doing to turn things around in California, and what does he think President Obama should be doing for the country?

We’ll also break down the last minute deal to avert a fiscal crisis and raise the country’s debt ceiling. Which side—if any—came out ahead, and where do things go from here? The so-called “super committee” of members from both bodies of Congress will have less than three months to reach a compromise. Is that possible? We’ll ask former White House communications director Anita Dunn and former Republican congressman Tom Davis.

And finally, we’ll discuss the brutal violence taking place inside Syria and alleged cyber attacks emanating from China with Vice Adm. Mike McConnell, former director of national intelligence.

And check out our pre-show rundown here.
