Raleigh, NC -- President Obama laid out his vision for the nation last week in the "State of the Union Address."

Monday night, Governor Pat McCrory will do the same for North Carolina.

High Point University political science professor Martin Kifer said the economy and lowering our unemployment will be a top focus.

It's foremost on many of our minds, and Kifer said the governor will most likely focus on it.

He said McCrory will lay out legislation he wants passed and goals he has set.  He believes the new governor will even talk about problem the state has, including the recent revelations of overspending at the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services.    

"At this point in time, what the governor will be focusing on is the power to rhetorically put things on the agenda, to set out a vision so he can work with the legislature and other parts of government to achieve what it is that he wants to achieve," said Kifer.
