Obama Fundraiser Tonight at Home of Univision Host

Another sign of the close ties between Spanish-language Univision and Democrats: Tonight’s Democratic National Committee fundraiser at the Miami home Liliana Estefan, the host of the popular “El Gordo y la Flaca” show.

Roughly translated, Fatso and the Skinny Chick . . .

Estefan is quite a political catch. She’s a star. She’s the niece of music stars Emilio and Gloria Estefan. And the Cuban-American, along with husband Lorenzo Luaces, is a registered Republican.

The president also has a DCCC fundraiser later at the home of Alonzo Mourning.

The Estefan fundraiser underscores the affinity between Univision and the Democratic Party these days. The network is partnering with Obama’s former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in an outreach effort. Univision owner Haim Saban is a major Democratic donor who said he’d back Clinton with “full might.”

From Saban to a network news honcho’s assistant, some at Univision have also made sure to train their fire on Republican Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a likely 2016 White House candidate.
