Udall Wants Parties To Sit Together During State Of The Union Address

DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado U.S. Sen. Mark Udall is calling on Congress not to take sides during President Obama’s State of the Union Address.

Udall is hoping members will cross party lines and sit together.

This is the third year he and a Republican lawmaker have asked party leaders to embrace their idea.

Tradition only requires that representatives and senators gather together in the House chambers for the speech, but does not dictate where they sit.

Udall says mixing it up would be a small way to bridge the partisan divide in Washington.
