The Door County Republican and Democratic Parties are reacting very differently to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, as one might expect. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tearing up the speech on national television is generating a lot of discussion. David Hayes, the head of the local Democratic Party chapter, says it was justified.
Republican head Stephanie Soucek was satisfied with the speech. She says the surprises made it the most memorable State of the Union she has witnessed. To her, one guest stood out.
Both Hayes and Soucek say they are cautiously optimistic about their party’s performance this fall.
