Senator Chuck Schumer has announced that failed Georgia Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will give the response to Trump's State of the Union speech.

According to The Hill:

Stacey Abrams, who ran as a Democratic candidate for Georgia governor in 2018, will give the Democratic response to the State of the Union next week, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced. 

"Three weeks ago, I called Stacey Abrams and asked her to deliver the response, I was very delighted when she agreed," Schumer said to reporters on Tuesday.

  After a close election in Georgia Abrams refused to concede the race to her Republican opponent. She did, however, acknowledge that she would not be certified the winner.
