President Barack Obama has been crisscrossing the United States in the same swing-states President Donald Trump is also visiting.

Obama was headed to his home city to support gubernatorial candidate J. B. Pritzker, who is running against Bruce Rauner. It is already on track to become one of the most expensive races in history.

The Simon Institute showed that Pritzker had a "comfortable" lead at the beginning of October. As of this past week, Pritzker had a double-diget lead.
