Sen. Katie Britt to deliver official GOP response to Joe Biden’s 2024 State of the Union

Today, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell announced Alabama’s very own, U.S. Senator Katie Britt will deliver the Republican Address to the Nation following the State of the Union address next Thursday, March 7.

“I am truly honored and grateful for the opportunity to speak directly to my fellow Americans and have a candid conversation about the future of our nation,” Sen. Britt said.

“The Republican Party is the party of hardworking parents and families, and I’m looking forward to putting this critical perspective front and center. There is no doubt that President Biden’s failed presidency has made America weaker and more vulnerable at every turn. At this decisive moment in our country’s history, it’s time for the next generation to step up and preserve the American Dream for our children and our grandchildren.”

In 2023, Senator Katie Boyd Britt was sworn in as Alabama’s first elected female Senator and the youngest Republican woman ever to serve in the U.S. Senate.

“For three years, President Biden has tried to convince the American people to accept historic inflation, rampant crime, retreat on the world stage, and functionally open borders as the new normal,” McConnell said.

“Next week, working families will hear a very different perspective. Senator Katie Britt is an unapologetic optimist, and as one of our nation’s youngest Senators, she’s wasted no time becoming a leading voice in the fight to secure a stronger American future and leave years of Washington Democrats’ failures behind.”

Britt holds key committee assignments, including the Committee on Appropriations; Banking, Housing, and Urban Development; and the powerful Rules Committee.

A practicing attorney by trade, Senator Britt is a graduate of the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama School of Law. She is a national bestselling author and resides in Montgomery with her husband, Wesley, and their two children Bennett and Ridgeway.

“Americans are struggling amid a border catastrophe, crushing inflation, an increasingly dangerous world, and fears about a President not up to the task. Against this backdrop, Senator Katie Britt will share her incredible story as the first woman elected to the United States Senate from the state of Alabama,” Speaker Mike Johnson said.

“As the only current Republican mom of school-aged kids serving in the Senate, Katie is fighting to preserve the American Dream for the next generation. She is a champion for strong families, a secure border, national defense and a vibrant economy with stable prices and opportunities for all. The American people will tune in as the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the Senate turns the page on the oldest President in history.”
