Previewing the Sunday Shows
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich dominates the Sunday shows this weekend, just two days before Super Tuesday, which could be a major make-or-break point for his campaign. He will appear on Meet the Press, Face the Nation, This Week and State of the Union. Former Sen. Rick Santorum's, R-Pa., campaign will also be a major presence on the Sunday show circuit, though he is only making one of those appearances -- on Fox News Sunday -- himself; Ohio Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine will be representing the campaign on both State of the Union and Bloomberg TV's Political Capital. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, meanwhile, will appear with Gingrich on Face the Nation.
On Saturday night, Gingrich, Santorum and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will participate in a jobs forum hosted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on his Fox News Channel show. The Huckabee forum will be broadcast live from a now-defunct DHL factory Wilmington, Ohio, from 8 to 10 p.m. EST. FBN's Charlie Gasparino, St. Louis-area small businessman David McArthur, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao as well as three locals who lost their jobs will join Huckabee in moderating the forum.
Also on Saturday, CNN carry live coverage of the Washington state Republican caucuses from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m., anchored by CNN's Wolf Blitzer. Then from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m., Fox News Channel will pick up coverage with a special live edition of Special Report with Bret Baier, following the Huckabee forum.
CNN's State of the Union will air two shows on Sunday, with a segment in the 9 a.m. airing previewing Pres. Obama's AIPAC speech and a post-game analysis with Reps. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Calif, airing in the noon time slot. Obama senior adviser David Axelrod will also be on This Week to discuss the administration's policies and reelection chances in 2012.
