The State of the Union is getting some Duck Dynasty.

A Republican congressman announced Tuesday that he is bringing Willie Robertson — one of the stars of the show — as his guest to the Capitol for Obama’s annual speech to Congress.

Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday about Robertson, the president of Duck and Buck Commander.

“I’m happy to announce that my friend, constituent & small business owner @williebosshog will be attending tonight’s #SOTU as my guest,” he said.

Willie Roberston is the son of Phil Robertson, who made headlines over the holidays for expressing why he believes homosexuality is a sin. A&E briefly suspended Phil Robertson from the show afterwards, but ended the suspension after an outcry from viewers.
