In the Crossfire: Schweitzer v. Schweikert

The U.S. is 11 days into the partial government shutdown and less than one week away from a possible breach of the debt ceiling, but everyone is talking, including the president. Is President Obama negotiating, even though he said he wouldn’t? Or is the GOP caving?

In the Crossfire tonight, Rep. David Schweikert, a Tea Party ally who wants Speaker Boehner to stand firm, and former Governor Brian Schweitzer, Montana’s first Democrat to hold the office in 20 years.

They'll join hosts Stephanie Cutter and S.E. Cupp to make their case at 6:30pmET.

Join the conversation and tell us what you would ask Schweikert and Schweitzer by tweeting with #Crossfire.
