Sunday on State of the Union

Ebola in America.

The chaotic Ebola developments leave many wondering who’s in charge. President Obama named veteran Washington operative Ron Klain as the point man for the government’s response to the outbreak, but Senator Ted Cruz says this country doesn’t need another “so-called czar” and demands the President lead by banning flights and securing the border. Senator Cruz is our exclusive guest.

Meanwhile, it’s a race to find more Americans potentially exposed to the Ebola virusDr. Anthony Fauci, director the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, joins us with the latest developments.

And where can a small electric fan upend a Governor’s race? Florida, of course!  That plus what else is moving the electorate in the final days before the midterm elections with Kevin Madden, Ana Navarro, LZ Granderson, and Penny Lee.

Watch State of the Union with Candy Crowley - Sunday at 9am and noon ET on CNN.

SOTU Scoop

By CNN's Tracey Webb

Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, October 16, 2014.

1. Ebola hearing on the Hill. The head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was grilled by members of Congress about the response to Ebola cases in the United States. Many lawmakers expressed concern about how the CDC is handling a limited outbreak of the virus. Amber Vinson, the second Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital nurse to contract Ebola, said she was cleared by someone at the CDC to board a flight from Cleveland to Dallas earlier this week after she called to report that she had a fever and had previous contact with an Ebola patient. "I have not reviewed exactly what was said but she did contact our agency and she did board the plane," Dr. Thomas Frieden told the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Frieden has said that Vinson should not have been allowed to take a commercial flight. Vinson is being treated at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.
