Stumping for Abrams, Oprah makes impassioned plea for turnout

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

Oprah then asked "Do you have an early voting plan?" and Denise assured her she did.

"To be very clear, Brian Kemp's scurrilous claims are 100 percent false, and this so-called investigation was unknown to the Democratic Party of Georgia until a campaign operative in Kemp's official office released a statement this morning".

"I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey says to a shocked Georgia resident who opened her front door to find the media mogul on her doorstep holding a clipboard.

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

Kemp, who oversees elections as Georgia's secretary of state, vehemently denies charges that he's used his office to make it harder for minorities to vote.

"I am an independent woman; I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do when I want to do it".

"I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message", Winfrey said, explaining that she tracked down Abrams' cellphone number and called her to say she wanted to offer assistance in the final days of the campaign.

In exchange for the contract-year wideout, Denver received a fourth-round pick and will swap their seventh-rounder for Houston's . The Texans are also one of the few teams that can afford to take on Thomas' salary despite his gradual decline.

Kemp's office says that eligible voters on the "pending" list can still vote if they bring a proper ID that substantially matches their registration information. In a Thursday speech delivered before a town hall, Winfrey praised gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and advised people to honor their ancestors by exercising their right to vote. Vice President Mike Pence had the flawless response by channeling Will Ferrell in "Anchorman".

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp still leads the Secretary of State's office despite being a candidate for governor.

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

Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching. oppression. suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

During an emotional high point of her address, Winfrey shamed non-voters for "dishonoring" and "disrespecting" late family members who weren't given the privilege of voting.

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door". Winfrey continued, despite the woman's surprise.
