    Some big name Democrats will be in Chicago over the next couple of weeks to help support Gov. Pat Quinn's campaign.

    President Barack Obama returns to Chicago on Wednesday for a closed-door fundraiser on Thursday at a downtown hotel and a speech on the economy at Northwestern University in Evanston.

    Michelle Obama will be in Chicago on Oct. 7 to support Quinn, and Hillary Clinton is expected on Oct. 8. The specific details behind the events have not been released.

    The big-name appearances may provide a welcome distraction for the Quinn campaign next week when a state legislative committee is scheduled to hold hearings looking into the governor's troubled Neighborhood Recovery Initiative.

    Early voting begins Oct. 20.
