GMA: Almost Half of America Didn’t Vote for Obama
GMA’s Lara Spencer brought up that half the country didn’t vote for Obama, and asked Longoria how she thinks he will fix that.
Longoria said that this was because America is the most diverse nation on the planet, and Obama was reelected because of his policies that work. She said it’s time to work for peace and end the gridlock in Congress.
Longoria said there was a lot of change that happened on the down ballot and hopefully that will help America and Congress. She hopes that partisan politics will end.
Eva Longoria Campaign Was Her Civic Duty
President Obama has given a lot of praise to Longoria for her help, and she said she was honored. Longoria said she didn’t do it for the celebrity, but because she cares deeply about this country.
Longoria said she campaigned as her civic duty and she knew Obama was the clear choice for where she wants to see the country go.
She also said that something needs to be done about the long lines to vote, especially in Florida.
