St. Paul native Josh Hartnett returns to the Twin Cities to host a student summit supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign. He joins Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak at 11:30 a.m. Saturday to host students from the University of Minnesota, Macalester College, St. Olaf College, Augsburg College, Carleton College, and Hamline University.

The event, at the University of Minnesota McNamara Alumni Center, is a forum to discuss issues including college affordability, access to health care and jobs creation. Hartnett's a college dropout (he had some attractive work-experience offers from Hollywood), but he loves a good policy debate.
