Portman campaigns for Obama (Natalie, that is)

Actress Natalie Portman and former Ohio First Lady Frances Strickland will headline a "Ohio Women's Vote 2012 Summit" Wednesday morning at the Museum Center at Union Terminal, in an event sponsored by the Obama campaign.

The Israeli-born actress, who won an Oscar in 2011 for her role in "Black Swan," has campaigned for Obama around the country, including an earlier stop in Cincinnati.

The campaign says the event will "provide Ohio women with an opportunity to hear how President Obama is standing up for Ohio woman and their families."

The event is free and open to the public, but the Obama campaign is urging people to RSVP here. 

The event comes two days after President Obama appeared before a crowd of 4,500 at Eden Park's Seasongood Pavilion.
