Oprah Winfrey said Dr. Mehmet Oz’s decision to run for office is an example of the greatness of American democracy, according to a statement.

“One of the great things about our democracy is that every citizen can decide to run for public office,” Winfrey said in a statement provided to Intelligencer. “Mehmet Oz made that decision. And now it’s up to the people of Pennsylvania to decide who will represent them.

Oz announced his candidacy for the Pennsylvania Senate race in 2022 in late November, running as a Republican to replace Senator Pat Toomey. Winfrey has a long professional relationship with Oz, having invited him often on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and offering to produce “The Dr. Oz Show” through his company Harpo Productions in 2009, People reported.

Oz said he asked Winfrey not to get involved in the race when meeting with top Manhattan Republicans at a steakhouse on December 16, The New York Post reported.

“I asked him to stay outside,” he said. “Don’t support me because if you get involved in any way you will be hurt and I don’t want my friends to be hurt.”

Former football star Herschel Walker is running for Republican in Georgia’s 2022 gubernatorial race after former President Donald Trump encouraged him to launch a campaign. It was later approved by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, while Oz has yet to receive major approvals.
