Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was selected as designated survivor for President Biden’s 2022 State of the Union speech.⁠

Whenever the president addresses Congress, the White House usually keeps one member of the cabinet away from the Capitol in a secure location while the other Cabinet secretaries attend the speech. The cabinet member who stays behind is known as the “designated survivor,” and would become president should an attack wipe out the rest of the presidential line of succession.⁠

Prior to her confirmation as head of the Commerce Department, Raimondo served as governor of Rhode Island, winning election in 2014 and again in 2018. She resigned from the position in early 2021 to serve in Biden’s cabinet.⁠

When Biden addressed a joint session of Congress last April, there was no designated survivor as most of the cabinet did not attend the speech due to concerns over COVID-19. Those attending Tuesday night’s speech had to be tested for the virus in advance, but masks are no longer required.⁠

During the speech, Biden is expected to discuss the Russian invasion into Ukraine, as well as domestic issues like inflation, the battle against the coronavirus and his new nominee to the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson.⁠

The commerce secretary is tenth in line for the presidency, following Vice President Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President pro tempore of the Senate Patrick Leahy and the heads of six other executive branch departments (State, Treasury, Defense, Justice, Interior and Agriculture).⁠

Those in the line of succession still must meet constitutional requirements to hold the presidency, meaning that Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, who was born in Canada, and Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, who was born in Cuba, are not eligible.⁠
