COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has invited a reality television star to this year's State of the Union speech in Washington DC.

In a photo tweeted on his official Twitter account, Graham says he's invited Korie Robertson, wife of Duck Dynasty star and Duck Commander CEO Willie Robertson.

"Proud to provide my guest ticket to tonight's SOTU to Korie Robertson," tweeted Graham.

Willie was also invited to the State of the Union by Louisiana Rep. Vance McAllister.

The Robertson clan has come under considerable amounts of fire following an interview in GQ with Willie's father, Phil Robertson, where he made anti-gay remarks.

Phil was suspended from the program "indefinitely" until the uproar from fans forced A&E to reinstate him to the hit show.

President Barack Obama will give the annual State of the Union speech on Tuesday at 9 p.m.
