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.
