Eva Longoria was on FOX & Friends discussing her fundraiser for President Obama’s campaign and her involvement in the reelection campaign.
Below are excerpts and video link of the interview courtesy of FOX.
Longoria discussed the “big turnout” at her fundraiser for President Obama adding that she “got to ride in the motorcade, which was a lot of fun.”
On her involvement in the President’s national re-election campaign Longoria said, “I particularly speak to the Latino community and the women’s community because I find that the policies that are being made in Washington disproportionately affect these two communities.”
On what she would say to American voters who are on the fence about voting for President Obama due to the economy:
“No, I know and that’s a big issue, it’s the number one issue for every American whether you are Latino or black or a woman. So that’s why I’m on the national re-election campaign is to go out there aggregate voters, be sure that they know about his record and everything that he’s done. I particularly speak to the Latino community and the women’s community because I find that the policies that are being made in Washington disproportionately affect these two communities. So it is my job to make sure to let everybody know his record.”
On her Texas fundraiser for President Obama:
“My home state, ya it was a big turnout, great rally. We had a great rally and then we had a private luncheon and then he headed off to Austin. I got to ride in the motorcade, which was a lot of fun.”
On Americans that say the ‘hope and change’ slogan for President Obama was not what they were hoping for:
“You know what I say to that, what I fear is voter apathy as opposed to ‘I’m disappointed so I’m just not going to vote for him.’ You know really look at the candidates, if you like what Mitt has to offer and you think he has a better plan. There’s really it’s just about two different choices, its two fundamentally different ideologies. The choices are very clear for me, for a lot of people in the Latino community, not that I am speaking on the behalf of all of them or on behalf of all women, I’m just saying this is what he has done, this is his record, and if you choose to agree with it, then vote for him.”
