Schneider, of Deerfield, faces Republican and former congressman Bob Dold of Kenilworth in a rematch for the north suburban 10th Congressional District, and Pelosi's stop is set to hit on several national issues Democrats have sought to highlight, including the minimum wage.

Pelosi was speaker of the House until the 2010 elections, when Republicans took over in a year that Dold first won a seat in Congress. Schneider defeated Dold in 2012.

The group, which also will include U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, an Evanston Democrat, is set to appear at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Teamster City, a union hall on Chicago's West Side.

The Schneider versus Dold matchup likely will be watched nationwide while Schakowsky faces Republican Susanne Atanus, a candidate GOP party leaders have tried to persuade to quit.
