Obama in Chicago on election night

| No Comments

DENVER--President Barack Obama will mark election night in Chicago--with the location not firmed up--but don't expect a repeat of the enormous 2008 celebration in Grant Park, I'm told.

Among the locations being looked at: U.S. Cellular Field, where the Chicago White Sox play. The ball park is near a rapid transit line and close enough to downtown hotels for donor events and housing.

Game schedules could rule out the United Center.

Suburban venues are also under consideration.

On the list but low is the Midway Plaisance, at the University of Chicago. Obama headlined a rally there right before the 2010 mid-term elections.
