Marco Rubio to Deliver Bilingual Response to State of the Union Address
For the first time ever the minority response to a State of the Union address will be delivered in both English and Spanish. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has been selected to give the Republican response. From Maimi Herald:
Marco Rubio won’t just give the Republican rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday night.
The Florida Senator will give two.
One in English. Otro en Español.
It’s the first time such a high-profile speech will be given in two languages by the same person, and it’s a sign of how crucial the Rubio has become in the GOP efforts to draw more Hispanic support and rebrand the party.
