Eva Longoria Endorses Marianne Williamson

CALIFORNIA DISTRICT 33

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Today, Marianne Williamson’s campaign announced the endorsement of Eva Longoria, actor activist and philanthropist.

In a video directed by Varda Hardy, Eva made her endorsement public. In the video Longoria said:

“I endorse Marianne Williamson for many reasons. There is a problem in the political system right now. And I find that we have to approach solving this problem in a new way, in a conscious way, in a way that is going against the tide. I find Marianne has the tools, the capability, the intellect, the ideology that is going to push against the status quo. And for me I think it’s important. I think it's wonderful she is running as an independent.  I think it's wonderful she doesn’t want to be beholden to this party or that party or that idea or this idea.”

She continued,

“She really believes that the power belongs to the people.  I always say the most powerful part of the political process is the citizen. And she seems to recognize that in a big way. Not only through her experience as a spiritual leader, as a motivational speaker, as a person who is involved in all kinds of communities - whether it is the female community, the minority community - I find that people can relate to her message because she truly speaks to the individual. And I think that’s what the political system is missing - the individuality of everybody’s voice. And she’s the one that’s going to help elevate those voices to be heard.”

Williamson expressed gratitude for Longoria’s endorsement. “Eva's support for my campaign is huge, and I thank her. She is everything I admire about the modern American woman --- accomplished, yet using her accomplishments to help improve the lives of others."

Eva Longoria//Apoya Marianne Williamson
Yo apoyo a Marianne Williamson por varias razones.  Hay un problema en el sistema politico ahora. Creo que tenemos que llegar a resolver este problema de una manera nueva, de una manera consciente, de una manera contra corriente. Yo creo que Marriane tiene las herramientas, la capacidad, la inteligencia, y la ideología que va empujar contra el statu quo.  Y por mi parte, yo pienso que eso es importante.  Yo pienso que es maravilloso que se está presentando como candidata independiente.  Yo pienso que es maravilloso que no quiere estar obligada a ese partido o el otro, o a una idea u otra. 
Ella realmente cree que el poder pertenece a la gente.
Yo siempre digo que el parte más poderoso del proceso político es el ciudadano.  Y ella se da cuenta de eso de una manera grande.  No solamente de su experiencia como líder espiritual, como oradora motivador, o como alguien involucrada con varios tipos de comunidades--aunque sea la comunidad femenina, la comunidad minoritaria--yo encuentro que la gente puede identificarse con su mensaje porque realmente habla con el individuo.  Y yo pienso que eso es lo que falta del sistema político, la individualidad de las voces de todos.  Y ella va ser la persona que ayuda a elevar las voces para que sean escuchadas.
