WASHINGTON (AP) - Two cities will get their first visits from President Barack Obama after his final State of the Union address.

The White House says Obama will visit Omaha, Nebraska, on Wednesday, followed by an appearance in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Thursday.

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

Obama is expected to talk at both stops 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 states has fallen significantly since the height of the Great Recession, and that more than 2.5 million people are covered under his health care law.
