WASHINGTON--Democratic Sens. Al Franken and Tammy Baldwin hit Chicago on Sunday for a fundraiser at the Lake View home of Brad Lippitz and Yoni Pizer to benefit Franken's political war chests.

The prices range from $1,000 to $5,200 to raise or donate for the Franken for Senate fund and Franken's Midwest Values Political Action Committee.

Franken, from Minnesota, first elected to the Senate in 2008 after a career as a comedy writer, performer and author, is up for re-election in 2014.

Last June, Lippitz and Pizer hosted a fund-raiser for Baldwin, elected to the Senate November from Wisconsin, with actress Jane Lynch a special draw.

Lippitz and Pizer hosted a fund-raiser on March 15, 2008 for President Barack Obama, when he was an Illinois senator making his first run for the White House.
