Former President Clinton Slated to Visit Chicago




    For blue state Illinois to remain blue, it looks like it will take even more than two separate visits from President Barack Obama, one from Vice President Joe Biden and the First Lady.

    Now former President Bill Clinton is paying a visit to the Windy City.

    Clinton will be in Chicago on Tuesday, visiting Obama's home state to rev the troops one week before Election Day.

    The former president is seen as more popular than Obama in some states and will be campaigning for all Democratic candidates, but will highlight Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, Gov. Pat Quinn and some congressional races.

    And it appears the president will return one more time as well, likely the final weekend before the election.
