Oprah denies interest in 2020 bid

Talk show host and entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey pushed back on speculation she might run for president in 2020, saying she would not be pursuing public office. 

“There will be no running for office of any kind for me,” Winfrey said on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday. 

Winfrey fueled speculation last month that she might actually run for the White House when she retweeted a column calling for her to run for president, saying, “Thanks for your vote of confidence.”


The New York Post piece, which was written by John Podhoretz, calls her the Democratic Party’s “best hope” for 2020.

Winfrey previously said she would rule out running for public office in June during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
