Longoria plans campaigning summer

The star will wrap up promotional work for the final episodes of Desperate Housewives and then hit the campaign trail, hoping to mobilise Latin Americans and women to vote the leader in for a second term later this year (12).

Longoria is one of seven Latin co-chairs involved with the Obama For America Movement, and she thinks her fellow Hispanics owe it to themselves to vote for the President.

Appearing on U.S. news network MSNBC on Monday (19Mar12), Longoria said, “Obama, for me, is the only one that understands that the success of the future of America is intricately tied to the success of the Hispanic community.

“I’m gonna be getting out there and showing the great things about what he’s done in his first term and Latinos need to hear it.”
