This Sunday...

FORMER HOUSE SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH; how fiercely will he fight to get his one-time rival Mitt Romney elected president? Also, will the Tea Party flex its muscles in Tuesday’s Indiana GOP Senate primary?

Plus, the road to the White House passes through Ohio and Virginia. Former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) and former Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) discuss how to win these two battle ground states.

President Obama’s Strategic Partnership Agreement with Afghan President Karzai relies on Afghan Security Forces taking the lead; will they be ready? And what’s the United States fall-back plan? We’ll talk to the leaders of Congress’s Intelligence committees, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI); they’ve just returned from Afghanistan.

And then, the newly released jobs numbers paint a picture of a staggering economy. The unemployment rate fell, but the pace of hiring did too; and many workers dropped out of the labor force. What does it mean for the 2012 race and President Obama’s approval? National Journal’s Major Garrett and budget experts Douglas Holtz-Eakin, and Alice Rivlin weigh in.

Tune in Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.

This Sunday on State of the Union...

[Updated Saturday at 4:00 p.m. ET]

Our main focus will be on the last minute negotiations to raise the country’s debt ceiling. We'll ask Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner what the White House's next move is.

Then, what stands in the way of a compromise? We'll discuss with two lawmakers on each side of the issue: California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Rep. Tom Price of Georgia.

We’ll also ask Sen. Feinstein about her bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. New York on Sunday becomes the sixth U.S. state to start marrying same-sex couples.

Finally, we caught up with presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty in Iowa. What message does he have for President Obama, and why, with a well-funded campaign and several trips to key states, are his poll numbers still mired in the single digits?
