It’s always interesting to watch liberals scramble to engineer a reality that does not exist. Interesting… and alarming considering liberals often use celebrities to promote their cause.
The latest in liberals’ attempt to engineer a new reality is the Latino Victory Project, a political-action committee that boasts Eva Longoria as a founder. The group claims to have a “non-partisan” goal to “engage Latino voters and elevate their voice.”
Of course, Latino Victory Project’s “non-partisan” claim is nonsense. The National Journal points out that the new groups’ founders, Eva Longoria and Henry Muñoz, have long histories with the Democrat Party. Longoria served as co-chair of President Obama’s re-election campaign and, of course, Muñoz is the finance chair of the Democratic National Committee.
In a recent interview promoting her “non-partisan” group, Longoria “quickly dismissed Republican policies and touted Democratic efforts.” The National Review,
“She named several Democratic leaders and completely failed to acknowledge the existence of U.S. senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio and other Hispanic Republicans… She further failed to acknowledge that in the last midterm elections Republican Hispanics made historic gains. New Mexicans elected their first Latina governor, Susana Martínez. In Nevada, Brian Sandoval became the state’s first Hispanic governor. Martínez and Sandoval are the only sitting Hispanic governors in America. Jaime Herrera Beutler became the first Latina ever elected to Congress from Washington State, and in Texas, Bill Flores defeated a 20-year Democratic House incumbent.”’
The reality is that our nation’s most prominent Hispanic political leaders are Republicans—something Longoria has yet to realize or is, ironically, attempting to change. According to the National Review,
“…the Republican State Leadership Committee’s Future Majority Project, which works to recruit and elect minority candidates for state-level offices, has recruited 195 new minority candidates representing 35 states, including 105 Hispanics.”
Questions for Longoria and Muñoz’s “non-partisan” group:
- Will the Latino Victory Project be supporting any of the 105 Hispanic Republicans running for state-level office?
- How does the Latino Victory Project plan to work with our nation’s most prominent Hispanic politicians… i.e. Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz along with Republican Governors Susana Martínez and Brian Sandoval?
- In Washington State, how does the Latino Victory Project plan to support the re-election bid of Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, Washington State’s first Latina member of Congress? And, how about Republican Pedro Celis, a proud first generation Mexican immigrant, who is challenging incumbent Suzan Delbene in the 1st Congressional District?
