Two sources close to Oprah Winfrey claim that she is serious about considering a presidential run.
While she has not yet decided, the fawning from the left and Hollywood circles has reached a fever pitch.
A new report claims sources close to Oprah Winfrey have confirmed the entertainment mogul and actress is considering a run for the presidency in 2020.
Two sources close to Winfrey say the 63-year-old media mogul is “actively thinking” about seeking the presidency and has engaged in several conversations about the matter saying back months, according to a report Monday from CNN’s Brian Stelter.
The sources reportedly stressed that Winfrey has not yet decided whether to launch a campaign for the presidency.
Winfrey set off calls for a possible run while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille honorary award at the Golden Globes Sunday night, during which she delivered a rousing speech that emphasized women’s rights amid the current #MeToo movement.
“I want all the girls watching here and now to know that a new day is on the horizon!” Winfrey said during her speech. “And when that new day finally dawns it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”
