UPDATED Miami-Dade commission chairwoman to host watch party for Marco Rubio's State of the Union response

The city of West Miami and Miami-Dade Commission Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa will host a watch party Tuesday -- not for President Barack Obama's State of the Union address, but for Sen. Marco Rubio's Republican response.

UPDATE: Sosa's office said Saturday that the event is, in fact, to watch both the president's and Rubio's speeches.

Rubio came up in politics as a West Miami city commissioner when Sosa, his political godmother, was the small city's mayor. Sosa, a close Rubio family friend, is also a Republican, though her commission post is nonpartisan.

In a news release on her commission letterhead sent Friday afternoon, Sosa and city officials invited residents "to watch Senator Marco Rubio become the first person to deliver a bilingual response to a State of the Union address." 

The watch party will take place at 9 p.m., when Obama is scheduled to deliver his annual speech to Congress, at 1700 SW 62nd Ave. -- at the, um, Rebeca Sosa Multipurpose Facility. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.
