For some members, yes. But others won’t be attending the president’s annual address to Congress at all.
Denver’s Fox 31 reported Monday that Rep. Doug Lamborn, a three-term Republican congressman from Colorado, will not attend the State of the Union.
The station reported that, according to Lamborn’s office, the congressman “does not support the policies of Barack Obama,” including the president’s recent recess appointments and his administration’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline.
Lamborn last made headlines in August, when he compared the idea of working together with Obama to “touching a tar baby.”
