It’s no secret that Sarah Silverman is a Bernie Sanders supporter—she wrote a March 9 essay for Lenny Letter saying as much. But in a new video released Monday on YouTube and Facebook, Silverman really lays it on thick.

Silverman says in the video that she was originally pro-Hillary Clinton but that her allegiances changed when Sanders entered the picture. “I’m not against Hillary, I just, I met someone I have more in common with, and his name is Bernie Sanders,” says Silverman.

What changed the comedian’s mind? The fact that Clinton takes money from big corporations and banks and Sanders doesn’t, she says. “With that he proved that what is right can also be possible.”

The clip has been viewed more than 11 million times since it was published yesterday.

Silverman also released another video that outlines more reasons she’s voting for Sanders:
