Former First Lady Michelle Obama made an announcement this week regarding speculation that she could run to replace Biden in the upcoming election.

In a statement to NBC News, the former first lady’s office denied the rumors that she was considering a run and said that she supports Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.

“As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” said Crystal Carson, director of communications for her office. “Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign.”

Obama also denied the rumors during an interview in 2022, saying that she detests talk that she will run for President.

“Politics is hard. And the people who get into it-it’s just like marriage, it’s just like kids-you’ve got to want it,” Obama said in February. “It is not in my soul. Service is in my soul. Helping people is in my soul. Working with kids? I will spend my lifetime trying to make kids feel seen and find their light. That I will do. I don’t have to hold office to do that.”
