SD Delegation Comments Ahead Of State Of The Union

SD Delegation Comments Ahead Of State Of The Union
WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night.

The president is expected to lay out his vision for the next four years.

Republicans, like South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem, hope the address doesn't turn into a campaign speech.

"I'm really hopeful that the president will choose to keep it policy oriented and not be divisive. We've seen some of that in his speeches lately and what we really need right now is unity. We need a leader who will step up, bring everybody to the table and really work for policies to get something done this next year," Noem said.

South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson says he expects President Obama to touch on the economic recovery.

Johnson says those who are critical of the president's speech are playing partisan games and need to work with the president to find common ground.

You can watch the president's speech on KELO-TV Tuesday night starting at 8 p.m. CST.
