Later this evening, President Barack Obama will head to his hometown of Chicago to attend two Democratic party fundraisers aimed to help his party help win back the House of Representatives from the Republicans.

"In the afternoon, the President will travel to Chicago. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at O’Hare International Airport are open press," Obama's schedule reads.

"While in Chicago, the President will attend two events for the DCCC. The first event at the Chicago Hilton will have pool coverage of the President’s remarks. The second event at a private residence will have print pool only coverage of the President’s remarks."

Obama is expected to stay at his Chicago home for the evening. "The President will remain overnight in Chicago."
