President Obama travels to Omaha Wednesday to deliver remarks following Tuesday's State of the Union address.  

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

Obama is expected to talk in Omaha, and again on Thursday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 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 Nebraska and Louisiana has fallen significantly since the height of the Great Recession.  

Obama will speak at Baxter Arena at the University of Nebraska Omaha.  Doors open at 1:00 p.m. CT.  Tickets were handed out previously for the event.
