This Sunday...

Candy is back in Washington this week for “State of the Union.”

The conventions gave us two distinct visions of the government’s role in America’s future, and the fall campaign will be a debate over which vision America wants.

We’ll have an exclusive interview with Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) about the tough fiscal choices he’s making to keep California on track and the political minefield that goes along with it.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went head-to-head with Bill Clinton in the 1990’s. He’s here to discuss how Mitt Romney can stop Barack Obama’s biggest weapon.

“Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Mitt Romney is asking that question amid another troubling economic report. We’ll talk to Democratic Convention speaker and the co-founder of CarMax, Austin Ligon, and Former Bush Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez.

And finally, we’ll preview the week’s political talking points with Peter Baker of The New York Times and A.B Stoddard of “The Hill”

Congress begins a 5-week vacation, leaving a long list of unresolved issues. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says Republicans need to revisit their anti-tax pledges and embrace bipartisanship in an effort to solve the country’s debt crisis. He’ll join us live for an exclusive interview.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doubled down on his accusation that Mitt Romney failed to pay taxes for ten years. Obama Campaign Senior Adviser Robert Gibbs is here to tell us what’s behind this elusive claim.

There’s mixed news on the economy as employers added 163,000 jobs in July, but unemployment rose to 8.3%. A Gallup poll this week indicated that only 35% of American business owners approve of President Obama. Many say federal regulations are stifling economic growth. BET Founder Bob Johnson and former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina are here to discuss.

We’ll round out the show with some analysis from CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash and Peter Baker of the New York Times.

Watch Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.
