WASHINGTON — House Speaker Mike Johnson on Saturday invited President Joe Biden to deliver his State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress on March 7.

“In this moment of great challenge for our country, it is my solemn duty to extend this invitation for you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Thursday, March 7, 2024, so that you may fulfill your obligation under the U.S. Constitution to report on the state of our union,” Johnson wrote in a letter to the President.

Hours later, Biden accepted the invitation. “Looking forward to it, Mr. Speaker,” the President wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Biden’s address will come just two days after Super Tuesday, where voters in more than a dozen states will cast ballots in the primary contest. Biden is expected to be close to secure the Democratic nomination by that point.

This will be Johnson’s first State of the Union since becoming speaker in October.
