President Obama will hold a news conference today at 11:15 a.m. ET, it was just announced.
It will be held in the East Room of the White House.
Barring some surprise, this will be the last news conference during his first term. The president will take the oath of office for his second term next Sunday (in a private ceremony) and then again Monday on the steps of the Capitol.
Among the topics likely to be discussed at his news conference: the budget, gun control, the economy, Afghanistan and immigration.
We'll live blog as he speaks.
