State of the Union Preview, Next Democratic Debate, and Building a Left-Wing Tea Party


On the Webcast Extra, a week after announcing new executive action on guns, President Obama is set to deliver his final State of the Union address on Tuesday where he will lay out the agenda for his final year in office. On the campaign trail, the Democrats hoping to succeed Obama are preparing for their next debate, and Martin O’Malley is fighting to get on the stage. And a left-wing party is expanding its reach to new states. It hopes to mimic the success of the tea party but pull the national conversation to the left. Plus, the complicated Iran-Saudi Arabia relationship.
