Obama Plans Election Night Rally in Chicago, Sources Say

President Barack Obama is planning an election-night rally in his hometown of Chicago at the giant McCormick Place convention center.

From there, supporters will await the election results and prepare for a moment of celebration — or dejection.

A person familiar with the plans says the decision is subject to change because no contract has yet been signed. The person familiar with the plans is not authorized to speak publicly about the arrangements and requested anonymity.

Obama held an outdoor Election Day rally in 2008 in Chicago’s Grant Park that attracted more than 200,000 people. The convention center can’t support a crowd of that size.
