Previewing the Sunday Shows
The May jobs report will be a feature topic of conversation on this week
Sunday shows, as Democratic and Republican governors as well as strategists at the presidential level debate how to interpret them.

On Face the Nation, Obama senior adviser David Axelrod and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will talk about what this week's jobs report means for the 2012 race while Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, and former Pennsylvania Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell join a panel dedicated to discussing the 2012 election. Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and Mitt Romney's senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom will talk about how the campaigns are responding to the week's news. Former White House auto czar Steve Rattner and Romney adviser Ed Gillespie are on Fox News Sunday also to discuss the impact of the jobs report.
