(WTVR) – Aides say the economy will be President Obama’s main focus in Tuesday’s State of the Union address.

The president’s aides also told CBS News the things he has focused on during his second term – gun control, immigration reform and climate change – will seem minor compared to job and wage growth for the middle class.

According to the Associated Press, the president will also cover taxes and budget cuts.
