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."
President Obama, before a wildly enthusiastic crowd of thousands at Cincinnati’s Eden Park, said his opponent, Republican Mitt Romney, “talks the talk, but I walk the walk” on a whole host of issues, from China policy to taxes to job creation.
And, while in the key battleground state of Ohio, in a county he won four years ago and desperately wants to win again, he told the estimated crowd of 4,500 at Eden Park’s Seasongood Pavilion that, in 15 days, they have to work hard to get thousands of their friends and neighbors to vote early.
President Obama's motorcade is on its way to Seasongood Pavilion at Cincinnati's Eden Park, where thousands of supporters have filled the hillside opposite the Cincinnati Art Museum, eagerly awaiting his arrival.
Excerpts of the president's speech make it clear that the president intends to tout his administration's action this morning to file a complaint with the World Trade Organization over what it considers unfair trade practices by China in the export of autos and auto parts.
Mitt Romney's campaign has already called the action "too little, too late."
