McConnell Keeping His Seat for State of Union

Sunday, 23 January 2011 09:46 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — Don't look for the Senate's Republican leader to take a different seat during Tuesday night's State of the Union address.

Democrats and Republicans usually sit with fellow members of their parties during the annual speech in the House chamber.

But with calls for more civility in Congress and less partisanship after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' shooting, some lawmakers are pledging to break with tradition during President Barack Obama's address this year.

Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky tells "Fox News Sunday" that he'll sit where he usually does for the speech. But McConnell says lawmakers who want to mix up the traditional party separation certainly can.
