Stutzman to deliver GOP weekly broadcast address

Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd, has been chosen to deliver the Republican Party’s weekly address for broadcast today by radio, TV and Internet outlets.

“Stutzman will talk about Republicans’ focus on growing our economy and helping Americans get back to work,” according to a statement Friday from the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.

Boehner selected Stutzman, a LaGrange County farmer and member of the House Financial Services Committee, to give the GOP’s weekly address.

The text of Stutzman’s remarks will be published online after 6 a.m. by Political Notebook: The Blog at

The Republicans’ weekly address typically aims to counter President Barack Obama’s own weekly address to the public.

Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., has delivered the GOP speech twice in recent years, including on Nov. 2 when he criticized the Obama administration’s bumpy rollout of the Affordable Care Act. Gov. Mike Pence gave the Aug. 24 address, in which he contended that the health care law was hindering the nation’s economic growth.
