Diaz-Balart to deliver State of the Union response in Spanish



Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Miami will deliver, in Spanish, the GOP response to the State of the Union, House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday.

“I am grateful to Speaker Ryan for giving me the opportunity to deliver the Republican address in Spanish,” Rep. Diaz-Balart said in a release. “The United States and the American people face grave challenges, all of which can be overcome with leadership in Washington, DC that understands the greatness of our country. We need a president who will unify, not divide; a president who will stand with our allies and stand up to enemies of freedom. House Republicans are committed to putting our country back on a path to prosperity, creating solutions that will bolster the economy, cultivate job growth, and provide for a robust national defense. The American people deserve nothing less.”
