Illinois Senate candidate Barack Obama will be in Jackson next Thursday to raise money for his U.S. Senate bid.
The 42-year-old Obama, a state lawmaker from Illinois, will speak to supporters at a fundraising breakfast.
Obama, the son of a former Kenyan goat herder, has enjoyed a national spotlight since his keynote speech this week at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.
Obama is unopposed in the Illinois election for now. Republican Senate nominee Jack Ryan officially withdrew from the race Saturday, weeks following a sex scandal.
