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.
