Obama guidance & press schedule, April 2, 2014: Chicago funders

President Barack Obama hits Chicago for a few hours on Wednesday to headline two fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee, after a stop in Ann Arbor to rally support to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama is the draw at a roundtable at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse hosted by Mesirow Financial Chairman and CEO Richard Price where about 25 are expected; the tab is up to $32,400. Later, Obama heads to Lincoln Park for a dinner of about 55 who donated up to $10,000–at the Lincoln Park home of Craig Freedman and Grace Tsao-Wu, who is an Obama major donor and fund-raiser.
