This Sunday...

Sunday on “State of the Union,” tightening poll numbers in the presidential race, and the heated debate over Bain Capital. Candy talks exclusively with Former Republican Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani, and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

On Memorial Day we remember those who have died in service to our country by taking an account of how we care for our veterans. Last year, we explored the challenges facing veterans. A year later we check back with our guests to measure progress:

General Peter Chiarelli (ret.), Fmr. vice chief of staff of the U.S. Army on treating PTSD and brain injuries in veterans.

Senator Patty Murray, chairwoman of the Veterans Affairs Committee, on the V.A.’s struggle to break the backlog of disability claims.

Tim Tetz, Legislative Director of the American Legion, and Paul Rieckhoff, Founder and Executive Director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America on the challenges our nation’s veterans have in finding a job in a struggling economy.

This Sunday...

This Sunday on “State of the Union with Candy Crowley”, an exclusive interview with the co-chair of the “super committee,” democratic Senator Patty Murray, as the committee vows to work through the weekend to reach a deal. Will we see any progress, and what happens if there’s no deal? We’ll get her thoughts.

Also, republican Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) says the Democrats, and in particular President Obama, would be happy if there’s no deal because it “helps his campaign,” we’ll talk to the Tea Party-backed senator about it.

Plus, a wide ranging interview with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who has authored a memoir on her time in the George W. Bush administration titled “No Higher Honor.” We’ll ask her about Syria, Afghanistan, and the Republican presidential candidates’ foreign policy views.

And finally, republican strategist Rich Galen, and former Pennsylvania republican Rep. Robert Walker, weigh in on the career and electability of newly minted top-tier GOP candidate, Newt Gingrich.

It promises to be a great show. Tune in Sunday at 9AM & NOON ET.
