"Latina Oprah" Cristina Saralegui - Endorses Obama

Originally from Cuba, Saralegui came to the U.S. with her family when she was 12 years-old. Often referred to as the "Latina Oprah," she became a household name with her Miami-based Spanish-language talk show, "El Show de Cristina"

..........................

Saralegui was named one TIME Magazine's "25 most influential Hispanics in America" in 2005.

This is Saralegui's first presidential endorsement.

"I came to this country when I was 12 years old, because my parents wanted to give me new opportunities to succeed. With their support and a lot of hard work I was able to pursue my dreams," said Saralegui in the video released by Obama for America.

"President Obama wants everyone to have the chances I had," she continued
