Trumka will be a “special guest” along with GE chairman Jeffrey Immelt.

(USA Today) — This is turning into a State of the Union-like event.

The White House has announced that nearly two-dozen guests will sit with first lady Michelle Obama to watch President Obama deliver his jobs speech to a joint session of Congress.

The list of business, labor, and political leaders includes GE chairman Jeffrey Immelt, AOL co-founder Steve Case, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka; and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, will also have guests in the gallery: “More than a dozen private-sector job creators,” according to a statement from his office.
