The Iowa state director for former President Obama's reelection campaign tweeted Monday at Oprah Winfrey amid speculation she could run for president in 2020.

"Call me @oprah," Brad Anderson tweeted.

"I've got some Iowa county chairs who would love to hear from you."

Talk of a potential Winfrey presidential campaign ramped up Sunday night after she gave an emotional speech at the Golden Globes about victims of sexual harassment.


In her speech, Winfrey said Hollywood needed to crack down on sexual harassment.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared to speak their truth to the power of those men," Winfrey said as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award.

"But their time is up. Their time is up!”  

Winfrey said in an interview after the show she does not have plans to run for president.

But speculation swirled, with the hashtag #Oprah2020 picking up steam on Twitter.

CNN reported Monday that two of Winfrey's friends told the network she is "actively thinking" about running for president in 2020.

Her longtime partner, Stedman Graham, told The Los Angeles Times that it's "up to the people," adding she "would absolutely do it."
