Obama Campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria Slams Mitt Romney

Eva Longoria is starting to dive into the partisan fray in her role as co-chair of President Obama’s reelection campaign, in which she will be a surrogate focusing on Latino and women’s issues. She plans to campaign in the swing states, where support among Latinos could make all the difference.

On Monday, she appeared on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” in which she said it was a “huge generalization for Mitt Romney to claim of support among Latinos given his decisive win in Puerto Rico.

She added that Romney is on the “wrong side of every issue pertaining to Latinos,” noting his stances on issues like health care, the economy and education.

Yet she said that it was a “problem” that Obama had failed to make headway in immigration reform, and said, “I know there’s disappointment in the Latino community.”

“He’s done what he can do,” she said.
