That was Peter Mayer reporting. And students at the University of Florida agree they hope Obama will also adress those economic issues. University of Florida College Democrat President Erin Murphy says she thinks Obama will continue to discuss the American Jobs Act to advance the economy.

With the economy surely being a key subject tonight, the speech will focus on a vision for restoring it, while trying to persuade voters to stick with him. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM will bring you live coverage of the state of the union at nine p.m. tonight.
