Rep. Joe Kennedy, D-Mass., will deliver the Democrats' response to President Donald Trump's State of the Union address Tuesday, sources told Politico.

"While President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class, Congressman Kennedy profoundly understands the challenges facing hardworking men and women across the country," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in a statement.

Virginia Delegate Elizabeth Guzman, an immigrant from Peru, will provide the Spanish-language response for Democrats, according to Politico.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., offered praise for Kennedy and Guzman. "In their responses to the president's address, Congressman Kennedy and Virginia Delegate Guzman will both do an excellent job in making clear that Democrats are laser-focused on enacting policies to benefit middle class Americans, not special interests or the wealthiest," Schumer said in a statement.

Kennedy is the grandson of late Sen. Robert Kennedy and great-nephew of former President John F. Kennedy and former Sen. Edward "Ted" Kennedy, D-Mass.
