In one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, a masked gunman opens fire on theatergoers at a midnight movie killing 12 and injuring 59 in Aurora, Colorado.

This Sunday...

David Axelrod is the president’s top campaign strategist, and he is our guest this Sunday on State of the Union. I’ll ask him if the Secret Service scandal will distract from the President’s re-election message, and what the latest economic warning signs mean for the President’s chances in November.

We also have an exclusive interview with Florida’s Republican Senator Marco Rubio. We’ll talk about his party’s outreach to the Hispanic community and speculation that he might be Mitt Romney’s pick for Vice President.

Rep. Elijah Cummings will be here to give us the latest developments in the Secret Service prostitution scandal. He’s the ranking democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee, and although they’re letting the Secret Service take the lead on the investigation, they DO want answers.

We’ll round out the show with CNN’s Senior Congressional Reporter Dana Bash and Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times.

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