WASHINGTON—Former President Bill Clinton hits Chicago again on Tuesday for two fund-raisers to benefit the White House bid of wife Sen. HIllary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.)

Clinton herself will return to Chicago in the days before Christmas to headline another series of fund-raising events as the fourth quarter draws to a close and weeks before the first votes are cast in Iowa on Jan. 3.

And on Dec. 7 in Chicago, chief rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) dips again into the deep Chicago networks that have provided millions in campaign cash at a fund-raiser he keynotes.
