Sunday on "This Week," Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs and Romney campaign senior adviser Ed Gillespie speak with George Stephanopoulos on the new jobs report and the latest in the 2012 presidential contest. Plus, Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly comes to "This Week" for his exclusive, first reaction to his debate showdown with Comedy Central's Jon Stewart, and political odd couple James Carville and Mary Matalin join the powerhouse roundtable.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney re-energized his campaign with a strong showing in the critical first presidential debate this week. With just one month until Election Day, can Romney capitalize on his debate win and narrow the gap with President Obama in key swing states? Can the president regain his footing after a shakier debate performance? And how will Friday's jobs report – showing unemployment dropping below eight percent for the first time since President Obama's first month in office – impact the race for the White House?
