There is no shortage of stories dominating the news this week, but what will be leading the headlines on Sunday morning? These are some of the stories we are looking at this week.
The Race Rages On. Mitt Romney averted disaster by winning a Tuesday two-fer, picking up wins in Arizona and his home state of Michigan. But he just narrowly eked out a 16-14 delegate victory over Rick Santorum in Michigan, who raised $9 million in February and is making a strong push to Super Tuesday. Some say it’s a two man race, but Newt Gingrich is fighting on. He’ll join us to discuss the way forward.
Mitch McConnell’s tough week. When a moderate Republican senator from a moderate Democratic state announces she’s retiring, GOP leaders may start to worry.

Olympia Snowe has announced her retirement?
Candy reports that the chance of a new candidate emerging before a brokered GOP convention is unlikely.
