Obama Looks to ‘City of Big Shoulders' For Deep Pockets

Dual Fundraisers Scheduled In Chicago

Barack Obama is hoping his home town of Chicago is still the City of Deep Pockets for him.

After campaigning in Green Bay, Wis., Monday, the Democratic presidential nominee will return to Chicago in the evening for two fundraising events.

The first Chicago event, with minimum admission of $1,500, will be held at The Standard Club. The second fundraiser, at a downtown
restaurant, is being hosted by Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias and has a $28,500 admission price.

The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics says donors in the Chicago metropolitan area have already given Obama $17.5
