Mayor Nutter on Meet the Press

Mayor Nutter will take to the national television stage Sunday when he appears on Meet the Press.

Nutter will participate in a roundtable discussion with the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne, Repubican strategist Ed Gillespie and The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan.

He will travel to Washington, D.C., for the chat. The roundtable will take a look at the people and issues likely to dominate the 2012 race for the White House. The group also will discuss the economy and jobs market.

The mayor's communications director, Desiree Peterkin Bell, said the appearance came about after the show's moderator, David Gregory, spoke at the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce last month.

"Meet the Press is really a lot of conversation around government, politics and the economy," Bell said. "Given Philadelphia's position as a major global city, it kind of makes sense to have the mayor on the show."
