Barack Obama (D-Ill.) is returning to Downstate Illinois for the first time in a long time. Obama has sharply reduced regular Senate-related travel in the state since he started campaigning for the presidency.
The official schedule lists as Collinsville as the only stop on Monday with no public events. That's usually code for a fund-raiser. Collinsville has a wealthy trial lawyer population to mine.
