Oprah told Politico on Wednesday that she would be “happy” to campaign for Obama in his upcoming reelection bid.
“I supported Barack Obama in 2008 because I believed then as I do now that he is the right man for the job,” she said in a statement. “I wanted to share my enthusiasm for his candidacy in hopes that others would see what I saw in him. As for 2012, if the campaign needs me, I’m happy to be of service. I’m in his corner for whatever he needs me to do.”
The statement reaffirmed Oprah’s steadfast support for Obama, and quashed earlier rumors that she might not stump for him as publicly as she did during his first campaign.
