More SOTU Seating Arrangements Announced

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) will sit with Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) during the State of the Union address, according to the Washington Post.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) announced on Twitter today that he will sit with Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR).

Meanwhile, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) "does not have a Democratic colleague to sit with during Tuesday’s State of the Union," The Hill reports.

Asked on ”Fox News Sunday” whether he will sit at the Republican leadership table during President Obama’s speech, he said, “I’m going to sit where I usually sit.”

"We don’t have seating assignments for most of our members. They can sit anywhere they want to," he added.

“More important than the appearance of sitting together is what we do together. And the American people are more interested in actual accomplishments on a bipartisan basis here in the next six to nine months than they are with the seating arrangement at the State of the Union,” he said.
