Eva Longoria Talks Immigration and Hillary Clinton Support At DNC


National political conventions tend to attract a few celebrities.  Last night actress and San Antonio resident Eva Longoria was on stage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.  She said she’s supporting Hillary Clinton.


“Hillary has spent her whole life fighting for all Americans.  From healthcare reform to equal pay for women, she’s been fighting for us for decades and now it’s time we fight for her," Longoria said.


Longoria criticized Republican Nominee Donald Trump’s comments about Latinos, women and the disabled.


Longoria and Democratic donor Henry Munoz of San Antonio have launched the Latino Victory Project, aimed at increasing the number of Hispanic candidates competing at all levels of government.
