Senator Katie Britt of Alabama Will Deliver Republican Address to the Nation

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced today Senator Katie Britt (R-AL) will deliver the Republican Address to the Nation following the State of the Union address next Thursday, March 7:

“Americans are struggling amid a border catastrophe, crushing inflation, an increasingly dangerous world, and fears about a President not up to the task. Against this backdrop, Senator Katie Britt will share her incredible story as the first woman elected to the United States Senate from the state of Alabama. As the only current Republican mom of school-aged kids serving in the Senate, Katie is fighting to preserve the American Dream for the next generation. She is a champion for strong families, a secure border, national defense and a vibrant economy with stable prices and opportunities for all. The American people will tune in as the youngest Republican woman ever elected to the Senate turns the page on the oldest President in history,” said Speaker Johnson.

“For three years, President Biden has tried to convince the American people to accept historic inflation, rampant crime, retreat on the world stage, and functionally open borders as the new normal. Next week, working families will hear a very different perspective. Senator Katie Britt is an unapologetic optimist, and as one of our nation’s youngest Senators, she’s wasted no time becoming a leading voice in the fight to secure a stronger American future and leave years of Washington Democrats’ failures behind,” said Leader McConnell.

“I am truly honored and grateful for the opportunity to speak directly to my fellow Americans and have a candid conversation about the future of our nation. The Republican Party is the party of hardworking parents and families, and I’m looking forward to putting this critical perspective front and center. There is no doubt that President Biden’s failed presidency has made America weaker and more vulnerable at every turn. At this decisive moment in our country’s history, it’s time for the next generation to step up and preserve the American Dream for our children and our grandchildren,” said Senator Britt.

In 2023, Senator Katie Boyd Britt was sworn in as Alabama’s first elected female Senator and the youngest Republican woman ever to serve in the U.S. Senate. Born and raised in Enterprise, she is the daughter of two small business owners. Growing up sweeping the floor at her dad’s Main Street hardware store and cleaning the bathroom at her mom’s cinderblock dance studio, she never could have imagined what her American Dream would entail.

Now, Senator Britt is proud to champion hardworking families as she fights to grow opportunity and preserve the American Dream for generations to come. As Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, she is a leading voice for border security and defending American communities.

A practicing attorney by trade, Senator Britt is a graduate of the University of Alabama and the University of Alabama School of Law. She is a national bestselling author and resides in Montgomery with her husband, Wesley, and their two children Bennett and Ridgeway.
