Previewing the Sunday Shows
Sen. Rand Paul's, R-Ky., 13-hour filibuster is sure to be a hot topic on the Sunday shows this weekend, though Paul himself does not currently appear in the lineup for any of the programs.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, meanwhile, will be on six Sunday shows, pulling off a bilingual "Full Ginsburg." He'll be on "Meet the Press," "Face the Nation," "Fox News Sunday," "This Week," "State of the Union" and Univision's "Al Punto." Bush will talk about his new book, as well as the challenges surrounding immigration and, of course, his potential presidential aspirations.
