SHARE McCain in Chicago Monday with Lieberman. High dollar fund-raising, speech.

WASHINGTON–Presumptive GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Az.) hits Chicago on Monday for high dollar fund-raising on LaSalle Street and a stop in McCormick Place for a speech to the National Restaurant Association with a domestic economic focus. Independent Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut–a McCain backer– will be with McCain during the visit.

After the speech to the restaurant convention, the campaign confirms McCain heads over to the newly merged Chicago Board of Trade/Merc Exchange where he will walk through the trading floor. He’ll then headline a reception hosted by LaSalle Street biggies Charles Carey and Jack Sander, with the price $1,000 a person; it will take raising $10,000 to gain entrance to a private reception.
