This Sunday...

A spring triple header is coming to Washington, and we’re not talking about the Nationals. Immigration, Gun Laws, and the Budget are on our minds.

Our guests include Republican Senator Lindsey Graham who says South Carolina is ground zero in the fight for immigration reform as evangelicals join Republicans in pushing for change. Plus, some leading Republican Senators are threatening to filibuster the Democrats attempt at comprehensive gun reform legislation. Will Graham join them?

We’ll also have an interview with Connecticut’s Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal. Has the momentum for comprehensive gun reform legislation dried-up just 100 days after the Newtown tragedy? We’ll also get his take on the President’s budget, which we expect to see on April 10. How much wiggle room will Obama have on entitlements, and does he really think Republicans will get on board with more spending?

Check out the exclusive interview with Prop 8 opponents David Boies and Ted Olson. Find out why the oddball pairing believes they’re on the winning side of history, and why they took up the cause in the first place.

Our political panel includes strategists Donna Brazile and Kevin Madden, along with CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin.

And on this Easter Sunday we’ll introduce you to the pastors of the most reviled congregation in America – the Congress. Senate Chaplain Barry Black & House Chaplain Patrick Conroy.

We have lots of ground to cover. Join us Sunday at 9am and Noon Eastern.

This Sunday...

With both parties bruised over the fiscal cliff wrangling, how will Congress tackle the next fights over spending and the debt ceiling? Plus, President Obama is expected to outline his 2nd term agenda in the next few days, but how much can he accomplish in a gridlocked Washington? We’ll talk to Senator Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, and influential Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.

Can new members change business as usual in Congress? We’ll talk to two Freshman: Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D) of North Dakota and Congressman Richard Hudson (R) of North Carolina.

This week’s drama over the fiscal cliff exposed deep political and policy chasms between both sides. Progressives insist they’re not compromising on spending, while Conservatives insist cuts must be put in place soon. We’ll talk with Neera Tanden from the left-leaning Center for American Progress, right-leaning economist Stephen Moore, CNN Senior Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash, and Jackie Calmes of the New York Times.

Watch State of the Union with Candy Crowley Sunday 9am and Noon.
