WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will meet members of the Senate Democratic majority on Wednesday night on "shared priorities" for the year, a White House official said on Monday.

The meeting comes as Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech on January 28 in which he is expected to promote his ideas for reducing income inequality among Americans.

Obama has also been trying to fend off an attempt by some senators to increase economic sanctions on Iran. He is concerned that increasing sanctions could upset delicate diplomatic efforts over Iran's nuclear program.
