CHICAGO – President Barack Obama has arrived in his hometown of Chicago.

Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn greeted the present at the airport after his plane touched down Wednesday afternoon.

The second fundraiser is at the Lincoln Park home of Obama donors Grace Tsao-Wu and Craig Freedman. That event is a dinner reception with about 55 supporters contributing up to $10,000 apiece.
