President Obama coming to Omaha, Wednesday

Posted By: KLKN Newsroom

President Obama will be in Omaha the day after his State of the Union Address to the nation.

The White House says Obama will visit Omaha on Wednesday, followed by an appearance in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Thursday.

Obama delivers the speech Tuesday night at the U.S. Capitol, and a trip the following day is tradition.

Obama is expected to talk at both stops about progress under his leadership, as well as an agenda for his remaining year — and the years to come — to keep it going.

The White House notes that unemployment in both states has fallen significantly since the height of the Great Recession, and that more than 2.5 million people are covered under his health care law.
