Eva Longoria Attends Cory Booker Rally In New Jersey, Says He's A 'Future President'
Eva Longoria, the actress, producer and political activist, stumped for Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker on his senatorial campaign trail before his victory on in the Democrat primary on Tuesday night.
Riding around the state on Booker’s tour bus, Longoria took to the podium in Plainfield and Jersey City before attending the evening rally in Newark. Longoria, who served a co-chair on President Barack Obama’s inauguration committee, believes that Booker is meant to do big things. “I think he's going to be a future President of the United States,” Longoria told Extra about the New Jersey politician on Tuesday.
“I just believe in him so much and his stance on everything. He’s dynamic, and he’s very personally involved in everything he does with public service,” she continued. “He puts his phone number on Twitter so people can call him directly if there's a pipeline broken. The way he's accessible to his constituents is really mind-blowing.”
While on the campaign trail on Monday, the former Desperate Housewives star tweeted, “Having fun with @CoryBooker in New Jersey!" and later added, "New Jersey don't forget to go out and vote tomorrow!! @CoryBooker for US Senate!"
After the votes were counted on Tuesday, Booker was deemed the winner of the New Jersey Senate primary election – making him one step closer to assuming the Senate seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg. The New Jersey special election will be held on Oct. 16 and will see Booker face off against Republican Steve Lonegan.
