From the Associated Press:

Kentucky's performance with health care sign-ups through its state-run website has earned Gov. Steve Beshear a White House invitation to attend President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.

Beshear has been a strong supporter of Obama's health care law. He will be among the guests sitting with first lady Michelle Obama when the president gives his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.

Beshear says the president's invitation came in a phone call from a senior Obama adviser.

The Democratic governor says his invitation puts Kentucky in the spotlight as a national model for implementing the Affordable Care Act.

Beshear's wife, Jane, also is invited and will be seated in the gallery.
