Abrams, former candidate of the Governor of Georgia, to give an answer to the state of the Union



WASHINGTON, January 29 (Reuters) – Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost the Georgian elections in Georgia, will respond to Democrats' response to US President Donald Trump's speech next week, the leading Democrat in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said on Tuesday.

"I am very excited that she is ready to be the responder," Schumer told reporters, adding that a few weeks ago he asked her to give the answer.

The answer is a counter-proof from the opposing party.

Trump will submit the address of the State of the Union on February 5th. It was originally scheduled for January 29, but was delayed due to the partial government shutdown.
