Skater Michelle Kwan campaigns for Joe Biden in Las Vegas

With a Joe Biden campaign button pinned on her blouse, Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan smiled and posed for pictures Thursday on a busy walkway in the middle of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus.

Kwan's visit kicked off what's likely to be a parade of celebrity appearances in swing state Nevada through the November 2020 presidential election on behalf of candidates.

Kwan, a five-time world champion and nine-time U.S. champ, is more than a famous face appearing on behalf of the former vice president.

The skating legend has taken on a paid role overseeing the celebrities and other famous faces who will appear on Biden's behalf as he runs for the White House.
