Rick Santorum on This Week

Sunday on "This Week," it's battleground Michigan. He's leading the Republican field in national polls, and with just days to go before the key primary, can Rick Santorum score another upset victory in Mitt Romney's home state?

George Stephanopoulos goes one-on-one with GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum on whether he can secure his position as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination.

And in a "This Week" exclusive, Michigan Governor and Romney backer Rick Snyder faces off against Massachusetts Governor and Obama campaign co-chair Deval Patrick.

Will a drawn-out negative battle for the nomination hurt Republicans in the fall? Will surging gas prices put the brakes on economic recovery, and on President Obama's re-election hopes? Governors Snyder and Patrick debate the key issues, only on "This Week."

Then, the "This Week" roundtable with ABC's George Will and Cokie Roberts, plus former Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, host of Current TV's "The War Room," and former Republican Michigan Gov. John Engler, president of the Business Roundtable, debate the state of play in the Wolverine State.

Will Santorum's debate performance this week slow his campaign's momentum? Would a Romney loss in Michigan cripple his campaign and extend the nomination battle to the convention? Will the latest culture wars over abortion, contraception, and gay rights distract from economic issues, and cost the Republican party moderate voters in the general election?

See the whole political picture, Sunday on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."
