Eva Longoria: Campaigning is my civic duty
Eva Longoria is campaigning for US President Barack Obama because she considers it her "civic duty".
The former Desperate Housewives star is co-chair of the president's re-election campaign.
While Eva, 37, admits the job is not very glamorous she says it's an important one she feels obligated to pursue.
"Being a co-chair is this… being in a tent, being in a rally, phone banks. It's not very glamorous. It's a civic duty that I really enjoy," she told US television programme Extra.
The actress is working hard on the campaign trail in the countdown to the November 6 presidential election.
Obama is facing off against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
While she hopes Obama will have another four years in office, Eva isn't planning on a full-time career in politics anytime soon.
"I'm going to be Ambassador to Costa Rica, so I can go drink piña coladas!" she laughed of her dream post.
