President Barack Obama is coming home next month to fundraise for Democrat Alexi Giannoulias (jeh-NOO'-lee-ehs), after the Illinois state treasurer brought in significantly less money than his Republican opponent in the race for Obama's old Senate seat.

Giannoulias campaign spokesman Matt McGrath says Obama is scheduled to be in Chicago for an Aug. 5 fundraiser.

News of an Obama visit comes after Giannoulias announced last week that he had raised $900,000 in the quarter that ended in June, compared to the $2.3 million hauled in by Republican Mark Kirk, a congressman from Chicago's northern suburbs.

It will be an embarrassing defeat for Democrats if they lose in November the seat Obama relinquished after he was elected president in 2008.
