Eva Longoria co-hosted a fundraiser for President Obama and has been to the White House to summit on Latino issues, and now she is making an online pitch for campaign donations.
Obama’s reelection campaign sent out emails from Longoria on Wednesday, directing supporters to a site where donors can enter a drawing to participate in a “Conversation with Eva” along with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.
Longoria writes, “In 2008, like so many of you, I dedicated a lot of my time to help Barack Obama win the presidency.
“Now, with 2012 around the corner, I wanted to get ready for the next election by sitting down for an intimate conversation with supporters like you to talk politics and the role we’ll play to win the 2012 election.”
The conversation is billed as a way for Longoria and Wasserman Schultz to hear the issues that matter the most to the four donors who are selection.
Longoria is a bundler for President Obama and is expected to play a role in boosting turnout among Latino voters.
