We’ve got a jam-packed show this Sunday just one day ahead of the first presidential debate. We’ll talk to both vice presidential candidates, Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), about the state of the race and debate expectations. Plus, we’ll talk to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) about 2016 and more, and we’ll sit down with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who went from Hillary Clinton rival to supporter and is now encouraging his supporters to get behind the Democratic nominee.
Off the campaign trail, violent protests erupted this week in Charlotte, North Carolina after police fatally shot a black man, and in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a police officer is now facing charges of first degree manslaughter after she shot and killed an unarmed black motorist. How are the Democratic and Republican candidates responding to the developments? And how might the news affect the first presidential debate?
Pence has already said that both he and Republican nominee Donald Trump want to refrain from talking about racial bias and institutional racism in the wake of police shootings, calling for unity instead of division. Meanwhile, Sen. Tim Kaine has said Americans should talk about racial tensions with the goal of building bridges between police and their communities. We’ll get both candidates’ take on this week’s events.
We’ll also talk with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, about the 2016 race, the recent events in Tulsa and Charlotte, and more. As the 114th Congress tries to get out of town to campaign, where does Ryan’s “Better Way” agenda stand versus Donald Trump’s. And as Romney’s running mate, Ryan was on the debate stage himself four years ago. What’s his advice for Donald Trump?
We’ll interview Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, who’s has been hitting the campaign trail for his onetime primary rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. He’s pushing his supporters to vote for the Democratic nominee, but are they responding? What more can Clinton do to earn their votes and retain their support if she wins?
We’ll have new CBS News Battleground tracker poll numbers to provide a glimpse of the state of the race in the key states of Virginia, Colorado and Missouri. CBS News Elections Director Anthony Salvanto will join us to dissect the numbers.
We’ll also hear from the man who moderated three presidential debates, our own Bob Schieffer.
