The GOP has officially chosen who will deliver the rebuttal speech to Biden’s State of the Union speech next Tuesday and America is in for a treat…
During a press conference between Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, both leaders announced that they have chosen Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders to refute Joe Biden’s speech.
Newly elected Governor of Arkansas Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been a firebrand for conservative values both as a candidate and as Donald Trump’s Press Secretary.
“Americans are still struggling from inflation, a border crisis, record crime, and a failing school system. As House Republicans work to fix these problems in Congress with our Commitment to America, Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders is addressing them head on with her conservative agenda outside of Washington,” McCarthy said during the announcement.
“The youngest governor in America, Sarah is fighting on behalf of parents, small businesses, and ordinary taxpayers,” McCarthy said continuing his support of Huckabee Sanders.

Reports of Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ response have her quoted in saying: “I am grateful for this opportunity to address the nation and contrast the GOP’s optimistic vision for the future against the failures of President Biden and the Democrats.”
Sanders also took to Twitter to announce her response to the speech saying:
I’m honored to have the opportunity to address the nation after the State of the Union on Tuesday.
What America needs – and what Republicans are offering – is a return to common sense and a commitment to the ideals that made America the land of the free and home of the brave.
