OR Gov To Watch State of The Union With Mrs. Obama
SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Gov. John Kitzhaber will watch President Barack Obama's State of the Union address from first lady Michelle Obama's box. Kitzhaber spokesman Tim Raphael says the White House extended the invitation yesterday, presumably to highlight Kitzhaber's health care and education initiatives. The Obama administration has given Oregon $1.9 billion to help enact the governor's health reforms. Raphael says Kitzhaber is honored by the invitation and called it "gratifying" for Oregon's efforts.
