Republican Response to State of the Union 2013
This year Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida will deliver the GOP response to the State of the Union. Rubio is a rising star in the Republican Party and thought to be a serious contender for the White House in 2016. In a clear play to the Hispanic electorate, Rubio will give his speech in both English and Spanish. It is thought that the one version of the speech will be pre-recorded in an effort to allow both versions to be broadcast simultaneously.
