WATCH: South Side group bolstering University of Chicago bid

With bids from four finalists for the Obama Presidential Library — the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Hawaii and Columbia University — due by Thursday, and with President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle expected to make a final decision on the library’s home in early 2015, Museum Campus South is putting the full-court press on to convince the Obama’s to “bring it on home.”

The group has put out a video to support the University of Chicago’s bid, where a host of people — and celebrities, such as Rhymefest and Chicago Bear Matt Forte — put in a personal plea.
