This Sunday...

Romney looks to gain traction and some message control with his swing state bus tour and the rollout of his Vice Presidential pick. One of those contenders, Senator John Thune will join us live from his home state of South Dakota.

It’s the dog days of august, but you wouldn’t know it if you live in a swing state and own a t-v. The campaigns, parties and outside advocacy groups have pummeled voters to the tune 10,483 ads so far this month. Can it get any nastier? We’ll ask Senior Advisers to both campaigns – David Axelrod and Ed Gillespie.

And with Romney-watch in full gear, we look at what his v-p pick says about the state of the campaign with our political panel.

Watch Sunday at 9 a.m. & NOON ET.

Gillespie: Romney retroactively retired from Bain Capital

(CNN) – Mitt Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie said Sunday on CNN’s "State of the Union" the GOP candidate “retroactively” retired from Bain Capital after the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics began.

"You know, there may have been thought at the time that he could be part time," Gillespie told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley. "It was not part time. The Olympics was in a shambles. There was corruption. There was – the International Olympic Committee was going to pull the Olympics from the United States of America which would have been a huge embarrassment. Because of Mitt Romney's leadership skills he was called on to do it."

Gillespie continued, "He took a leave of absence and, in fact, Candy, he ended up not going back at all and retired retroactively to February of 1999 as a result."
