House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the highest-ranking woman in Republican House leadership, will deliver the official rebuttal to President Barack Obama's State of the Union on January 28.
House Speaker John Boehner's (R-OH) office announced Thursday that the No. 4 House Republican would deliver the response.
"I am honored to speak with Americans in every corner of the country on Tuesday and to share our Republican vision for a better future – one that trusts the American people and doesn’t limit where you finish because of where you started," McMorris Rodgers said.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) will give the Tea Party's rebuttal.
