(CNN) - While the president gears up to address the country and deliver the State of the Union address, GOP presidential hopefuls will make their own public appearances Tuesday.
Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty will speak at the "Politics and Eggs" breakfast in Bedford, New Hampshire. The event, founded in 1996, is considered a "must-stop" on the road to the White House. Candidates from both parties are invited to speak at the series.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will visit Des Moines, Iowa, to speak at an event for the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association. The association fosters the development and growth of the state's ethanol and biodiesel producers - groups that are considered key for an Iowa caucus winner.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will speak in Reno, Nevada, at the Weatherby Hunting and Conservation Award Dinner on the eve of the president's address. Past speakers at the event include former President George H.W. Bush and 1964 GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater.
And Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann will deliver her very own response to the President Obama's address on the Tea Party Express website. Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan will deliver the official Republican response.
