  • Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby

After surprising Georgians by campaigning for Abrams door-to-door, Oprah spoke at a Thursday campaign rally for her in Marietta.

"I'll be going out this weekend in my home state of NY and I wanted to especially encourage all those in Georgia to show up for Stacey Abrams who's running for governor to better the lives of all Georgians", he said in a video post on Twitter.

"Georgia has always been on a path of change and evolution", Abrams said.

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. Unlike Lively, who opted for the look sans shirt, the media mogul went the more conservative route paring her suit with a Tory Burch "vote" shirt ($68).

Kemp said the election was about "this generation and generations to come and the kind of state that we leave them".

A white supremacist group that targeted Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum with racist robocalls is now targeting Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Former President Barack Obama is also scheduled to campaign for Abrams on Friday.

"So we're basically saying Stacey Abrams has got it in the bag and she has no problems", McCain said.

President Trump responded to Oprah Winfrey's appearances last week by claiming that he was friends with her - until he ran for office.

Mr Pence has criticised Ms Abrams for using Ms Winfrey during her campaign.

Female voters said they prefer Abrams 53.4 percent to 38.9 percent, while male voters said they prefer Kemp 54.5 percent to 40.5 percent. I don't want to run.

A pro-Kemp ad funded by the Georgia Republican Party accuses Abrams of trying to allow illegal immigrants to vote.

Taking into account the historical voting patterns and the representation of African Americans in USA politics, Abrams' campaign has drawn much public attention. "I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said. MPP gives Brian Kemp an F for failing the state's most vulnerable citizens.

Trump says that based on Abrams' past and her plans for the state, Georgia "will be in big, big trouble very quickly and the people of Georgia don't want that". "Are you voting for her?"
