Colorado lawmakers to be side-by-side for State of the Union speech

DENVER (AP) – All seven members of Colorado’s congressional delegation will sit together during next week’s State of the Union address.

The Denver Post reports that Republican representatives have agreed to participate in the show of unity promoted by Democratic Sen. Mark Udall but emphasize that, most of all, voters want lawmakers to focus on the economy.

Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski has joined Udall in promoting having Republicans and Democrats sit together during the president’s speech on Tuesday.



Republicans and Democrats usually sit on opposite sides of the House chamber during the speech.
