Natalie Portman Begins to Stump For the President — and Women — in Vegas

Natalie Portman headed to Las Vegas on Saturday to attend a special event on behalf of President Obama's reelection campaign. She was a guest of honor at the Nevada Women Vote 2012 Summit, which aimed to highlight the differences for women that would occur under another term for the president vs. his Republican rival Mitt Romney. We're also keeping a close eye on women's issues that matter in the 2012 elections.

Natalie spoke to hundreds of Obama supporters at the city's Historic Fifth Street School. There will be a series of Women Vote Summits, but Natalie picked Nevada for a reason. Explaining her decision to appear in Vegas, Natalie said, "Nevada is a battleground state, and the women are really going to decide this election."

Prior to the political event, Natalie got her nails done in LA. Natalie and her family, husband Benjamin Millepied and their son, Aleph Millepied, have been on the West Coast while both Natalie and Benjamin work on new projects.
