Tickets inviting guests to President Donald Trump's first official State of the Union address on Wednesday had to be reissued after a misprint.

The tickets read, "Address to the Congress on the State of the Uniom."

Lawmakers had fun with the glitch: "Looking forward to tomorrow's State of the Uniom," Senator Marco Rubio of Florida tweeted with a picture of the invite.

Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona used the glitch to jab at the secretary of education: "Just received my ticket for the State of the Union. Looks like @BetsyDeVosEd was in charge of spell checking... #SOTUniom"

The House Sergeant at Arms is responsible for printing and distributing the tickets. An official said a correction was immediately made and all but about a dozen tickets have been exchanged.
