ABC News' Mary Bruce (@marykbruce) reports:

President Obama wraps up his Midwest bus tour today in the state that launched his political career, Illinois.

Obama will hold two town halls today in his home state, stopping first in Atkinson, Ill., at the Wyffels Hybrids Production Facility and then in Alpha, Ill., at the Country Corner Farm.

Expect the president to also make more surprised stops along the road. Yesterday Obama dropped by four towns in Iowa unexpectedly to spend time with members of the local communities.

Tonight the president will return to Washington before heading out to Martha's Vineyard with his family tomorrow for ten days of R&R.
