CNBC host Suze Orman declared her support for Elizabeth Warren’s potential presidential bid in an upcoming interview with Larry King.

Presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has so far benefited from the idea that uber-liberal Massachusetts Sen. Warren will challenge her in a primary. The narrative allows Clinton to position herself as a moderate Democrat in the public consciousness.

Orman, who deems herself “undeniably America’s most recognized expert on personal finance,” is firmly on board the Warren bandwagon.

“I tell ya, and I’ll go on record saying this, if she would run for president, against anybody, I-,” Orman began telling King in a segment on his Ora TV program that will air Thursday.

“Including Hillary?” King ventured.

“Including Hillary Clinton. I would vote for her hands down,” Orman said. “She is the real deal. I think that woman — I couldn’t have enough good things to say about Elizabeth Warren.”

Orman said she did not think Warren would run, but that if she did “there would be a challenge there.”

“I really love Warren. I love her. Because there’s never been a time that she’s ever done anything other than what she has said,” Orman added.
