Democratic National Committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus speak exclusively to George Stephanopoulos on the state of the economy and the 2012 presidential contest, Sunday on "This Week."
Friday's jobs report shows the U.S. economy added a better-than-expected 163,000 jobs in July, the best jobs report since February. But the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3%, marking 41 straight months above eight percent. Is the modest growth enough to convince voters the economy is on the right track under President Obama, or can presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney lay out an economic agenda that will win over undecided voters?
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Reince Priebus discuss the economy and the election, Sunday on "This Week."
Then, the "This Week" powerhouse roundtable debates the latest jobs report and all the week's politics, with ABC News' George Will, ABC News senior political correspondent Jonathan Karl, conservative commentator Ann Coulter, former Obama White House environmental adviser Van Jones, and former Counselor to the Treasury Secretary and Lead Auto Adviser Steven Rattner.
As the battle over tax cuts escalates on the campaign trail, who will make the strongest case on the economy before Election Day? While the latest polls show President Obama leading in key swing states, will negative ads continue to take a toll on both candidates? Will Romney's stumbles overseas hurt his campaign as he moves closer to making a critical decision on his vice presidential pick? And what does the Republican Senate primary win in Texas by newcomer Ted Cruz mean for the Tea Party's future?
