Sunday Breakfast Menu, July 29


With 100 days until Election Day, both presidential campaigns will be represented on the Sunday talk shows.

On ABC's “This Week,” Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser to the Obama campaign, and Kevin Madden, a senior adviser to the Romney campaign, will weigh in on the week's events, including Mitt Romney's diplomatic misstep of questioning London's preparedness for the Olympics.

Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, and Senator Kelly Ayotte, Republican of New Hampshire, will talk about the candidates' foreign policy plans on CNN's “State of the Union” as Mr. Romney embarks on the next leg of his international tour, to Israel.

“Fox News Sunday” features an exclusive interview with Justice Antonin Scalia, who will talk about his new book and share his thoughts on some of the Supreme Court's major decisions and his own judicial philosophy.

Justice Scalia's former colleague on the bench, Sandra Day O'Connor, will appear on CBS's “Face the Nation” to share her own thoughts about the state of the court. And less than a week after Monday's announcement of the N.C.A.A.'s sanctions against Penn State, CBS will also talk to Rodney Erickson, the university's president, about the aftermath of the child sexual abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant football coach.

Also on CBS: Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, will discuss the presidential race.

Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the House minority leader, is the guest on Bloomberg's “Political Capital” this week.

On C-Span's “Newsmakers,” Representative Sander M. Levin of Michigan, ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, will talk about the tax choices facing Congress, as well as the economy.

Bill Richardson, former New Mexico governor, will appear on Univision's “Al Punto,” where he will share his thoughts on the presidential race, immigration and relations with Latin America.

NBC's “Meet the Press” is off for two weeks because of the coverage of the Olympics. TV One's “Washington Watch” is on hiatus until the fall.
