The White House isn’t the only one looking to build momentum to tonight’s national address.

On Monday evening, Speaker Boehner took to Instagram to post a picture and promote the State of the Union along with the much anticipated Republican response by Joni Ernest.

Using the same hashtag as the White House, #InsideSOTU, @speakerboehner, is sharing some behind the scenes moments.

One key moment is from a flashback to last year when Speajer John Boehner adjusted Vice President Joe Biden’s suit, inspiring a flurry of tweets to erupt.

“His suit and tie looked pretty nice, fancy,” Speaker Boehner says in a YouTube video. “I wanted him to know that I noticed that I thought he was stepping out a little bit with his fancy suit.”
