Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) gave the Tea Party response last year. The PAC held the first response by the movement featuring Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) in 2011, and former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain delivered the response in 2012.

Republicans have yet to announce who will give their State of the Union response this year. Last year, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) delivered the rebuttal, during which he took an awkward water break.
