Oprah Endorses Hillary Clinton, Joining A Growing List Of Billionaires Backing The Democratic Candidate

Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey is officially supporting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “I’m with her,” Oprah told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday at the premiere of her new OWN drama, Greenleaf.

“Regardless of your politics, it’s a seminal moment for women,” Oprah said. “What this says is, there is no ceiling, that ceiling just went boom! It says anything is possible when you can be leader of the free world.”

Oprah is the latest addition to a growing group of billionaire backers Clinton has amassed since she declared her candidacy in April 2015. Some have spoken out publicly in support of her campaign, while others have quietly shown their support with their wallets. Two of Clinton’s biggest known billionaire financial backers are media mogul Haim Saban and hedge fund manager George Soros. Her super PAC Priorities USA Action has raised $75.9 million in this election cycle, according to the FEC.

Here’s a look at the billionaires who have endorsed Clinton and/or donated to her campaign:
