Republicans Choose Washington Congresswoman for State of the Union Response
Posted Thursday, January 23rd 2014 @ 5pm

We now know who will give the Republican Response to President Obama's state of the union speech next week.

Republican leaders have selected Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a member of Congress from Washington State, to deliver their response to the State of the Union speech, which President Obama gives next Tuesday.

Rogers is the fourth ranking Republican in the house, the only Republican woman in a leadership job in either House or Senate.  It comes as Republicans try to improve their position with women voters, but her appearance will come in the same week House Republicans will vote on a bill to further restrict abortion coverage in health insurance policies.

You can hear President Obama's State of the State speech on KFBK next Tuesday night.
