Sunday Talk Shows (6/24/12): Meet the Press, Face the Nation, GPS and more

Guests on the Sunday political talk shows this week include Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who makes his first appearance on a show other than Fox News Sunday when he’s interviewed on NBC’s Meet the Press. His running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), will appear on CBS’ Face the Nation and ABC’s This Week. Obama supporters San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, White House senior adviser David Plouffe and Newark Mayor Cory Booker are the balance to the top of the Republican ticket.
