Oprah Winfrey is 'not considering' Senate seat

It has recently been reported that Winfrey is being considered to take on California Senator Diane Feldstein's seat following retirement rumours. However, the media mogul's spokesperson shut down the speculation on Thursday by insisting that Winfrey "is not considering the seat should it become vacant". Feinstein, who will turn 90 next month, has recently been seen using a wheelchair due to health issues and was absent from the Capitol for a total of 10 weeks, causing the influx of rumours.
