Oprah surprises Georgia residents while campaigning for Stacey Abrams

Winfrey, who has been urged to run for office for months now, told the crowd: "I'm not trying to test any waters, don't want to go in those waters".

On Friday, a federal judge ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people to vote in Tuesday's midterm elections after they were originally barred under the state's so-called exact match law, USA Today reported. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote". "I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand because I'm thinking of running myself".

Abrams would be the first black female governor in US history.

In a direct call to women, Winfrey said it hasn't even been 100 years since women had the right to vote, and called for women to honor the legacy of those who fought for the right.

Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, second left, and US Vice President Mike Pence at a Kemp rally held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on November 1, 2018.

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

Pence said Abrams' campaign is being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", but that despite the major support from the entertainment industry, voters will choose a governor who genuinely wants to put the needs of the state and the values of its citizens first.


We couldn't help but notice how similar Winfrey's ensemble looked to the blue velvet suit that Lively wore for her pantsuit-heavy A Simple Favor press tour.

The Georgia governor's race is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation and is attracting top surrogates from both parties in the final days before the election.

"I've heard nothing about it", Abrams told CNN's "State Of The Union" when asked about the investigation. "I think people want to know: Will it work?"

Winfrey blasted attacks on Abrams that she says she saw in her hotel room - Republican ads casts Abrams as "too extreme" and "radical" for Georgia - as "noise" that is "designed to confound you with fear".

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door".

Kemp's office, which supervises elections in Georgia, offered no evidence publicly for launching the investigation two days before voters go to the polls to decide which party will control Congress and to select three dozen state governors.

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds.
