Pelosi Turns Down Offer To Sit with Cantor at Speech 

It's bipartisan date night on the floor of the House and invitations are flying. But not all are being accepted.

House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has rejected an invitation from Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., to sit together at the President's State of the Union Address.

Pelosi moments ago announced that she had already extended an invitation to Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, of Maryland, who also happens to be a Republican.

Cantor was shot down in a tweet from the former speaker.

"I thank @GOPLeader for his #SOTU offer, but I invited my friend Rep. Bartlett from MD yesterday & am pleased he accepted."
