Six days before South Carolina, it’s social-conservative Sunday. You’ve got Santorum on Fox and CBS and Perry on ABC and CNN, but Newt’s the one to watch to see how he handles Bainmania in the home stretch. Will he dig in or play good cop/bad cop with his PAC? His interview with Gregory makes “Meet the Press” this morning’s best bet.
Or actually, is “Face the Nation” our best bet? You’ve got Newt there too, plus Santorum, plus Jim DeMint in his last chance to speak directly to South Carolinians before the big vote. He’s said before he won’t endorse in the primary, but harsh words for Newt’s Bain messaging could help Romney. Here’s the line-up from the LA Times:
