Live Blog: President Obama's State Of The Union Address
Facing a still ailing economy, a divided Congress and a renewed debate on gun control and immigration, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union address this evening.
Obama is expected to use the speech to set an agenda for his second term. He's expected to announce a drawdown of American troops in Afghanistan and focus heavily on jobs and the economy.
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida will deliver the Republican response following the president.
Most networks will carry the address live at 9 p.m. ET. NPR's live coverage begins at 8:30 p.m. ET.
