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”

SOTU Sneak Peek

Here's our lineup so far for Sunday's big show:

The conventions gave us a clear picture of two distinct visions for the country. We'll talk to two national figures who represent both sides.

We have an exclusive interview with California Governor Jerry Brown (D). We'll get his take on the DNC, and look at the hard decisions he's made such as approving billions in cuts to social services to close the state's budget gap.

And we’ll have an exclusive with former presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich. We'll get his unique insights on President Clinton's role in the Obama Campaign, and ask what advice he'd give to Mitt Romney's campaign heading into the fall.

SOTU Crib Sheet


Candy talked to three prominent Democrats on the party’s campaign message and firing up the base:
Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley: “This is the contrast, we are about jobs and opportunity, and they are about bigger tax breaks about billionaires.”
North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue: “Folks want people to come together to solve the problems and the challenges of America.”
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa: “We have the most comprehensive ground effort in ever... and we are going to be focusing on the Latino vote. We will be focusing on the 12 or 13 states where the election is in swing opportunity.”
