Sunday: Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Manafort


Republican U.S. presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz speaks at a press event at the Republican National Committee Spring Meeting at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, Florida, April 20, 2016.


It was another good week for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who both turned in strong performances in Tuesday's Acela primaries and moved one step closer to clinching their parties' nominations. Can the other candidates in the race keep the primaries alive? We'll look into it this Sunday on "Face the Nation."

We'll talk with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who made news this week with his announcement of Carly Fiorina as his preferred vice presidential nominee. Is he worried the move might be seen as too audacious, given Trump's wide lead in the GOP delegate count? And what does he make of the colorful insults former House Speaker John Boehner directed at him this week?

We'll also interview Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose campaign announced widespread layoffs in the wake of their disappointing performance on Tuesday. What does Sanders see as his path to the nomination, at this late juncture? And what kinds of changes to the Democratic Party will he push, if he falls short?

We'll talk with South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham about both the chaos of the 2016 race and the continuing fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. How does he see his party's convention shaping up? And is he encouraged by President Obama's decision to send 250 additional troops to assist in the fight against ISIS in Syria?

We'll sit down with Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's convention manager, to discuss how the GOP frontrunner is hoping to finish off the primary calendar - and how he'll approach a GOP convention that could showcase a starkly divided party.

We'll also bring you the highlights from Saturday's White House Correspondents Dinner, including the best jokes from President Obama's comedy routine.

Finally, we'll break it all down with an expert political panel, including The Atlantic's Molly Ball and Jeffrey Goldberg, Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan, who's also a CBS News contributor, and Slate's Jamelle Bouie, who's also a CBS News political analyst.
