Tony Perkins President from the Family Research Council, and Dick Armey Chairman, FreedomWorks assess the 2012 GOP race.
Dick Armey on Newt Gingrich: "I feel bad for him. I think he's digressed into a state of taking a second rate campaign and turning it into a first rate vendetta, and I think he's putting himself out of the game because he can't get over his obsession about his own hurt feelings over the campaign in Iowa."
Tony Perkins on Romney: "I disagree that Romney has captured the evangelical support, the conservative support. They're warming to him but he still has a long way to go. "
The battle for 2012 rages on to Nevada, then off to Colorado and the Midwest. All the GOP presidential candidates are vowing to stay in until the convention, so every state matters. We talk strategy with the heads of each party’s governors associations: Virginia Governor and Republican Governors Association Chair Bob McDonnell and Maryland Governor and Democratic Governors Association Chair Martin O’Malley.
Then, coalescing around a candidate; The Tea Party, the religious right…do they support one candidate in the race? We’ll ask Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey.
Plus, big news in the economic world this week: New jobs number, a shocking CBO report, and President Obama’s new economic initiatives. We break down the numbers and the political spin that goes with them with our expert panel: Former CBO Directors Alice Rivlin, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, and CNN Senior Political Analyst Ron Brownstein.
And finally, we end the show looking outside the U.S.: Is war between Israel and Iran a real possibility, and how does this impact the U.S.? We talk to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI).
It's all this Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.
