With the 2012 election looming, President Obama has has named 35 ambassadors to help rally voters as he strives to win another White House term.
Barack’s administration announced the complete list of advisers on Wednesday and Longoria and Penn were among the consultants and politicians.
Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, said in a statement, “The president’s national co-chairs will be tremendous assets on the ground as we build the biggest grassroots campaign in history. They each share the president’s vision for a future where every American can have a fair shot at success, where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded.”
Eva Longoria has been a longtime Obama supporter since the days of the 2008 election, and Penn previously quit showbusiness to serve as the Associate Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement in 2009 before returning for an arc on ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ and ‘ A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas 3D.’
