The Republican National Committee (RNC) argues a high-profile campaign backed by Eva Longoria meant to elevate Latino candidates is really a partisan group created to elect more Democrats in a letter first provided to BuzzFeed.
In the letter, the RNC says a nonpartisan organization dedicated to giving Latinos a greater voice in politics by supporting Latino candidates is a worthy cause, but that the Latino Victory Project is not being truthful about its intentions.
Longoria and Henry Muñoz III, Democratic National Committee (DNC) finance chair, founded the political action committee last year, with the stated purpose of elevating Latino political participation.
The letter attacks Muñoz for appearing on MSNBC in front of a DNC banner while promoting a nonpartisan organization. Longoria is also called out for an interview she did with Jorge Ramos, in which she named Latino candidates the Latino Victory Project would support and officials who are having an impact in politics, but did not name any Republicans.
