WASHINGTON, D.C. - When President Barack Obama gives his annual State of the Union Address tonight (Wednesday) St. Cloud State University President Earl Potter will be in the audience.

Potter says he is the guest of U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar.  He says he's not sure how much interaction he'll have with other members of Congress.

He says it will be an honor.

Potter says he was invited to Washington by Klobuchar because of the immigration bill that she's working on.  Potter supports opening up more opportunities for foreign students to study at U.S. colleges and universities.
