Actress Eva Longoria and percussionist Sheila E. will join President Barack Obama at a rally Thursday in North Las Vegas, the Obama campaign has announced.
Longoria, known for her role as Gabrielle Solis on the ABC television series “Desperate Housewives,” has been a public supporter of the president throughout the campaign season and spoke on Obama’s behalf Oct. 23 at UNLV. Sheila Escovedo is known as Sheila E. and has performed with Prince, Ringo Starr and George Duke.
The rally will take place at Cheyenne Sports Complex, 3500 East Cheyenne Ave. Doors are scheduled to open at 11:30 a.m.
