Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will deliver the Democratic Party’s official response to President Trump’s State of the Union address, confirmed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday.

The February 5th event was delayed one-week to accommodate the partial government shutdown, with Pelosi extending her second invitation to President Trump to speak before a joint session of Congress.

“It is my great honor to accept,” Trump said in a letter to Pelosi. “We have a great story to tell and yet, great goals to achieve!”
