Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria showed off her political prowess this weekend as she spoke on behalf of President Obama’s re-election campaign at the Florida Women Vote 2012 Summit.
Wearing a Hispanics for Obama badge on her elegant teal mini-dress (which she paired with black platforms), Longoria, an Obama campaign co-chair, looked radiant as she voiced her democratic views at the women’s summit in Miami this weekend.
In July, she told US television programme Extra: ‘The reason I support President Obama is because he’s the one that most reflects what I want our country to look like moving forward…
‘It was an honour to be named one of the co-chairs of the re-election campaign and I’m a big Obama supporter.’
The petite actress isn’t the only celebrity who’s a fan of the current President. In June, Sarah Jessica Parker hosted a $40,000-a-head fundraising dinner for him and wife Michelle at her New York home, with an A-list guest list including Meryl Streep, Anna Wintour, Aretha Franklin, Olivia Wilde and designer Michael Kors.
