Eva Longoria Named National Co-Chair of Obama’s Campaign
02/23/2012 - 12:20 ||
President Barack Obama is gathering up his A-team and biggest loyalists to help increase his approval numbers for the 2012 Presidential Election. One of the thirty-five nominees is Mexican actress and big-time Obama supporter, Eva Longoria. The Desperate Housewives star will join fellow celebrities, politicians and business executives in an effort to strengthen the President’s 2012 campaign.
Longoria’s role will be seeking out other high-level celebrity endorsements and contributions. The 36-year-old star is known for campaigning heavily for Obama’s political vision alongside other Latinos including, Antonio Banderas and George Lopez. According to The Hollywood Reporter, this year’s co-chair list also includes seven Latinos like San Antonio’s mayor Julian Castro and Los Angeles chief executive Antonio Villaraigosa.
We previously reported that a new poll by Latino Decisions for Univision News and ABC News revealed that Latinos have mixed reviews on Obama’s reelection. In addition, 53 percent of Latinos claim that they are “less excited” about Obama than they were in the beginning of his campaign. While 31 percent disapprove on the President’s work in the White House, 61 percent say that they think he is doing a good job.
His new strategic move just may end up increasing his approval numbers. What do you think?
