Who is the designated survivor for the state of the union?

The tradition of the “Designated Survivor” goes back to the Cold War, according to the Constitution Center.

Last year, Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo served as the designated survivor.

During Biden’s first address before a joint session of Congress in 2021, there was no designated survivor because most of the cabinet did not personally attend the speech due to COVID-19 safety protocols.

Other such events include the Super Bowl and the Democratic and Republican National Conventions.
