Obama guidance & press schedule May 22, 2014 Cooperstown, Chicago

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has a double-header on Thursday, heading to Cooperstown, N.Y to speak at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum about his new travel and tourism agenda; after that, the president comes home to Chicago for fund-raising events on the North Side to benefit Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. and Senate Democrats. Obama will overnight in Chicago.

My Thursday column on Obama aiming to give “strong support” to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn re-election bid is HERE.

My column on the Chicago fundraising high-dollar events — a reception on the Gold Coast and a dinner in Lincoln Park — is HERE.
