The Republican party has picked a woman to deliver the GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, Tuesday.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodger, R-Wash., is the highest-ranking Republican female in the nation's capitol.

The Washington state congresswoman balances being a mom of three and her work in nation's capital, something many Republicans hope can connect her with more women voters.

In the 2012 election President Obama carried 55 percent of the female vote.
