Boehner invites Obama to deliver State of the Union on Jan. 28

December 13, 2013

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) formally invited President Obama to deliver the State of the Union address on Jan. 28.

“In the coming year, Americans expect Washington to focus on their priorities and to look for common ground in addressing the challenges facing our country,” Boehner wrote in the invitation. “In that spirit, we welcome an opportunity to hear your ideas, particularly for putting Americans back to work.”

It will the fifth such speech of Obama’s time in office. The president addressed a joint session of Congress his first year in office, but it was not technically a State of the Union.
