Sarah Huckabee Sanders to deliver GOP response to Biden's State of the Union
Driving the news: McCarthy on Thursday touted Sanders as "fighting on behalf of parents, small businesses, and ordinary taxpayers" in his announcement.
- "Americans are still struggling from inflation, a border crisis, record crime and a failing school system," McCarthy said.
- "As House Republicans work to fix these problems in Congress with our commitment to America, [Sanders] is addressing them head-on with her conservative agenda outside of Washington," he added.
The big picture: Sanders served as the White House press secretary for two years during former President Trump's administration.
- She earned Trump's endorsement in Arkansas' governor's race.
