Boehner Invites President Obama to Give State of the Union

Posted: Updated:

House Speaker John Boehner has invited President Barack Obama to deliver the State of the Union speech on February 12.

In a letter sent Friday, Boehner says the country faces immense challenges, and Americans expect the Congress and White House to work together on solutions. Boehner says cooperation will require, quote, a "willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership."

The Ohio Republican says the president can present his plan and specific solutions at a joint session of Congress in the House chamber.

Last year, Obama delivered the State of the Union speech on January 24. 

Meanwhile, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval will deliver his annual State of the State address Wednesday. We will carry the governor's remarks live right here on Channel 2 starting at 6pm followed by the Democratic response.  (AP)
