WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton touched down in Chicago on Monday for a fundraiser on Navy Pier, a few hours before she hits Wisconsin for a multi-city swing in advance of its primary April 5.

Clinton was last in Illinois on March 14, the day before the Illinois primary, where she packed in four Chicago campaign events and a stop in Springfield.

Among the hosts for the fundraiser at Riva’s Restaurant on Navy Pier: Raj Fernando, David Rosen and Bill Singer. Among those in the crowd of 220: Illinois Senate nominee Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., who, I am told, got a shoutout from Clinton.

The price points are host, raise $27,000; champion, $2,700; and attendee, $1,000.
