Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ SOTU Response

The news has been flooded this week with reactions to the President’s State of the Union (SOTU) address. The GOP selected the highest ranking woman, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, to deliver their response.

“Through the lens of her family’s experiences, Cathy will share our vision for a better America built on a thriving middle class, guided by a fierce belief in life and liberty, and grounded in greater trust between citizens and their government,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a written statement (CNN Politics).

McMorris Rodgers provides a strong example of balancing work and family. As a mother of three young children, McMorris Rodgers balances the roles of wife, mother, and Congresswoman. You can see in the tweets below the value that she places on her family.

Couldn’t get through these moments without my supportive husband. Thanks for tuning in – I know we can #closethegap! http://bit.ly/1i9oyPn 

I’ve got my #GOP #SOTU remarks in one hand and 2-month old baby Brynn in another! Doesn’t get much better than this: http://bit.ly/1bmPRR4 

As we see more and more wives and mother participating in the political sphere, are they setting the new standard for women in politics?
