Oprah, Pence visiting Georgia in deadlocked governor's race

'I approve this message': Oprah makes rare political appearance in support of Georgian candidate

He wields guns in his ads and lambastes Abrams as a tool of "socialists" and "billionaires" who "want to turn Georgia into California".

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections", Winfrey said, "but rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community". I don't want to run. The suit was brought by the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda, protesting Kemp use of the state's "exact match" law, in his capacity as secretary of state. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too".

Perhaps even more than President Barack Obama, who will campaign for Abrams on Friday, Winfrey's appeal closely aligns with Abrams' political pitch.

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote, and you are choosing not to vote - wherever you are in this state, in this country - you are dishonouring your family", she said.

Abrams' campaign has attracted support from prominent celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, who has canvassed and rallied with the candidate.

A spokeswoman for Abrams lumped Kemp in with President Trump, suggesting the president created the climate for the racist calls to air.

On Sunday morning, Abrams appeared on the political talkshows.

Another similar call is targeting Florida voters, as Democrat Andrew Gillum - a black candidate - is on the ballot for the state's governor.

On "Outnumbered", Washington Post editor and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Winfrey is an "entity unto herself", and her endorsement may carry some weight, but he believes Hollywood elites won't swing races for Democrats in next week's midterm elections.

Oprah also hosted two town halls with Abrams during her trip.

She encouraged women of all races - "sisters ... not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago.

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Candice Broce, Kemp's press secretary, said in a statement.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
