"It is good to be back home," he said. "I am sleeping in my bed tonight. I'm going to go into my kitchen. I might cook something for myself, putter around in the backyard a little bit."
He was in town for three campaign fund-raisers Friday. Earlier in the day, the president visited a factory in Minneapolis, where he also held fund-raisers. Tickets for at least one of the Friday fund-raisers went for the maximum annual amount an individual is allowed to donate to Obama’s campaign - $38,500.
Obama has been in Chicago several times this year, most recently for the NATO summit last month. In January, he told neighbors that he hoped someone was keeping an eye on his house.
"Is somebody mowing the grass in front of my house?" he asked, to laughter. I’m going to go over there and check. Because I don’t want you guys talking about me.
“He’s a good president, but nobody’s mowing the lawn," Obama suggested neighbors might be saying behind his back. “Bringing down property values."
