Betty White says she favours Obama

2012-05-12 18:28

Washington - Betty White says she usually keeps her political views private but in this presidential election she strongly favours one candidate.

As the 90-year-old actress prepares to visit the Smithsonian Institution and National Zoo next week, White told The Associated Press she "very, very much favours" President Barack Obama in the election.

The Golden Girls star said on Friday she is very bi-partisan and has stayed away from politics her whole life. She usually never says who she is for or against because she doesn't want to turn off any of her fans.

White says in this year's election, she likes what Obama has done and "how he represents us".

Her comments come after Hollywood turned out at George Clooney's home to raise $15m for Obama's re-election, a record for a single fundraiser.
