WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will return to his Chicago hometown on Jan. 11 to attend raise money for his presidential campaign.

Obama's campaign says the president will attend two fundraisers at the homes of Fred Eychaner (Eye-can-er), a Chicago media mogul, and Stuart Taylor, a Bear Stearns executive.

Obama has raised more than $150 million for his campaign and the Democratic National Committee as of Sept. 30. All the presidential campaigns are scheduled to file their latest fundraising reports next month.
