In 2012, legendary comedian Roseanne Barr surprised fans by not only adding her name to the U.S Presidential race, but managing to rack up more than 65,000 votes as the leader of the Peace and Freedom Party.

With the 2016 Presidential race nearing, Barr’s fans were wondering what to expect from the budding politician. According to the New York Daily News, she is considering launching another run for the White House and believe she has a possibility of winning.

“I might keep running till I win. I definitely can win – it’s a possibility, it’s not a probability but it’s a possibility. If you can make it to the ballot, you can win,” Barr tells the New York Daily News.

Barr’s Presidential efforts were documented by director Eric Weinrib, who recently released a documentary with the campaign and behind-the-scenes footage.

During the Presidential run in 2012, Barr spoke with us about her platform. Check out our exclusive interview here.
