Fresh off his August rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., cable television commentator and best-selling author Glenn Beck invades Barack Obama's home territory to commune with Illinois' conservative faithful.

Beck is headlining the Right Nation 2010 convention at The Sears Center in Hoffman Estates Saturday night.

Joining Beck are Blogger Andrew Brietbart, former House Republican Leader Dick Armey, U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock from Peoria and Tea Party leader Herman Cain.

Organizers are expecting attendees from as far away as Florida and California.  Tickets start at $77; and go up to $1,200 to meet Beck, have a photo taken with him and receive an autographed copy of his book.

Billed as the largest political event in the Midwest, the convention follows an activist training conference being held at the Marriott Chicago Northwest in Hoffman Estates. 

Hosted by the United Republican Fund, the Illinois Republican Party and the Midwest Tea Party Coalition; proceeds will benefit conservative political campaigns.
