Reaction Tuesday to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address by members of Oklahoma's congressional delegation:
Two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing and an openly gay NBA player are among the guests who will sit with first lady Michelle Obama Tuesday when President Barack Obama delivers the annual State of the Union address.
First lady Michelle Obama will host two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombings; the Moore, Okla. fire chief; a gay professional basketball player; a young tech intern; and the 2013 District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) Teacher of the Year at Tuesday's State of the Union Address, the White House announced Monday.
Moore Fire Chief Gary Bird will be among the guests who sit with first lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday when President Barack Obama delivers the annual State of the Union address.
As search and rescue teams combed Moore, Okla., for survivors of Monday's deadly twister, officials struggled to describe devastation that, even for a town in the heart of "Tornado Alley," is almost unimaginable.
Moore Fire Chief Gary Bird told reporters Tuesday that he was confident no more bodies or survivors would be found in the rubble.
"I'm 98 percent sure we're good," he said, though he added that he hoped to conduct repeat searches of devastated buildings.
