Ros-Lehtinen to deliver State of the Union response in Spanish

Associated Press



Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami, will deliver her party's response to the State of the Union address in Spanish.

But before her words are heard, Ros-Lehtinen will put bipartisanship on display. She'll sit with Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach. “We are friends and colleagues who regularly work together on everything from issues involving the economy and Middle East and so we wanted to sit together to remind folks at home that we stand united in solving problems and breaking gridlock in Congress for South Floridians,” Ros-Lehtinen and Frankel said in a statement.
