Republicans are rushing to defend Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) of Minnesota, who plans to deliver a response to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night on behalf of the tea party movement.

The official Republican rebuttal will come from Rep. Paul Ryan (R) of Wisconsin, chairman of the House Budget Committee.

Some television networks plan to show at least some of Congresswoman Bachmann’s response, after Congressman Ryan’s, creating the appearance of a divided Republican Party with dueling messages.
