President Barack Obama will take the spotlight Tuesday when he delivers his State of the Union address, but Republicans were on the offensive this weekend.
Former presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney appear to be taking the nation's temperature.
"It's wide open. Anybody could be a contender," said Huckabee. The 2008 presidential candidate is promoting a new book and weighing in on the culture wars.
On Sunday, Huckabee criticized the president on ABC's "This Week" for allowing his children to listen to Beyonce.
At a GOP event over the weekend, 2012 candidate Romney said he believes his party can control Congress and the White House next time around.
"I'm giving some serious consideration to the future, but this I know, we can win in 2016 as a party," he said.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz says Romney already stands out among other potential candidates.
"You've got to have somebody who can raise the $1 billion that it's going to take in order to beat Hillary Clinton," he said. "Certainly Mitt Romney can do that as well."
Clinton has not yet said if she'll seek the Democratic nomination. Other Democratic possibilities include Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
