The idea has gathered steam over the past few days, and members joked about their “dates” for the evening.
But not all of them have someone to sit with.
Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) joked he got dumped.
"I don't have a date [for the State of the Union]. I got dumped," Van Hollen told The Hill on Monday. Van Hollen's originally planned to go with Rep. Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanJuan Williams: Pelosi shows her power Cheney takes shot at Trump: 'I like Republican presidents who win re-election' Cheney allies flock to her defense against Trump challenge MORE (R-Wis.) but now Ryan is giving the Republican response to the speech.
"Looks like I'm going stag. Maybe I'll look for another date," Van Hollen said with smile and a good-natured laugh.

"I am a free agent," she said.
And Rep. Jason ChaffetzJason ChaffetzCongress's latest hacking investigation should model its most recent Fox News Audio expands stable of podcasts by adding five new shows The myth of the conservative bestseller MORE (R-Utah) took to Twitter to bemoan his lack of a date.
“So I don't have a date to SOTU. Oh, how it is to be the ugly conservative,” Chaffetz tweeted Monday.
Later he joked: “Perhaps the First Lady needs a date?”
Second-term Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), who starred in a 2009 CNN series with Chaffetz about congressional freshmen, tweeted they could sit together:
“I'll be sitting with the R & D CO delegation, but u can join us, UT is a neighboring state!” he wrote.
As of Tuesday morning, Chaffetz hadn’t revealed his seating plans.
But several other lawmakers have. The Hill has compiled a list of who will be sitting with whom, using Twitter, news accounts and interviews.
