Politics

Actor Kal Penn is returning to Nevada to stump for President Barack Obama. The star of "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle" is scheduled to speak late Wednesday at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

He is hosting a student summit designed to get out the youth vote in the November elections. Penn is also the former associate director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

He campaigned in Las Vegas for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2010. Nevada is an important swing state this year. Obama took the state in 2008.
