Latinos will have a special gala this Sunday for President Obama's inauguration: the Latino Inaugural. Hosted by Eva Longoria and featuring a star-studded cast, it's also a way for them to celebrate their influence on the 2012 campaign.

We talk with Andrès Lopez, one of the main organizers of the event and a former advisor to the Obama campaign.
