A look back at our "Getting to Know" series, a place to learn more about the personal side of the news-makers who come on our program every Sunday.
Candy reports on the rise and fall of Tim Pawlenty's presidential campaign.
The clock is still ticking, as we’re just days away from the August 2nd deadline. We still don’t have a deal on the debt, with each side scrambling for a last minute breakthrough. The tough part will be finding common ground that will allow passage in both the House and Senate. The debt will be a big focus this Sunday, as guest host Gloria Borger will talk to the key players involved in finding a solution.
GOP presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty says President Obama should "quit hiding in the basement" and reform Medicaid.
Plus: Watch Pawlenty sound off on same-sex marriage in the second part of our interview. Check it out here.
And don't forget, more of Candy's interview with Gov. Pawlenty will air next Sunday on State of the Union.

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?
It’s Wednesday, and here’s where we stand...
Well, it used to be months, now we’re looking at weeks – less than two, to be exact – until the Treasury Department says we’ll have to start writing I.O.U.s instead of checks to our creditors. So are we any closer to a deal? Depends on who you ask. The bipartisan “Gang of Six” presented a plan to about 50 senators and received a warm response. But there are some serious questions as to whether or not it’s even possible to put together a major deal before August 2nd. The likely alternative: a short-term stop gap. So yes, the budget will be a big topic again this Sunday.
