Oprah Winfrey backed Beto O’Rourke in his bid for Governor of Texas ahead of Tuesday’s elections.
O’Rourke, who is running against Republican candidate Greg Abbott, tweeted Winfrey’s statement of support to his millions of followers on Sunday.
“There are clear choices out there, and some dynamic candidates who are working to represent the values that we hold dear – the values of inclusion, the values of compassion and community that so many of us share,” she said. “In Texas, Beto O’Rourke.”

During a virtual town hall on Nov. 3, Oprah gave her support to Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman who is running against Dr. Mehmet Oz in the midterm campaigns.
“I’ll tell you all this, if I lived in Pennsylvania, I would have already cast my vote for John Fetterman for many reasons,” Winfrey said.
“If I was in North Carolina, sister (Cheri) Beasley there, and if I was in Florida, I’d be supporting Val Demings,” she said. “If I was in Wisconsin, it’d be Mandela Barnes; in Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto; and in Texas, Beto O’Rourke; and Raphael Warnock and the incredible Stacey Abrams in Georgia.”
Winfrey added, “There are clear choices out there and some dynamic candidates who are working to represent the values that we hold dear. The values of inclusion, the values of compassion, and community that so many of us share.”
