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

She is a Yale-educated attorney who served a decade in the Georgia Legislature, including a stint as minority leader.

Winfrey explained that in her canvassing, she already talked to people who have voted early and plan on volunteering for Abrams.

The two current frontrunners for the position of governor in the southeastern state of Georgia are Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp. I'm not trying to test any waters.

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Mr Pence said.

"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 said, when we were watching it, 'If that women can get folks to eat pizza with a cauliflower crust on it, she is going to get that woman elected the first black female governor.' She took people to church", the co-host added.

Pence was campaigning for Abrams' Republican opponent, Brian Kemp.

The robocall went out to Georgia voters, but it is unclear how many received it.

Online, Dolores also starred in Get Out The Vote videos in English and Spanish, urging Georgia voters to turn out for Abrams. In a statement on Sunday, Kemp's office said they had officially requested the FBI to investigate the matter.

"Any voter confusion in our state rests on the shoulders of Stacey Abrams - who is obviously too extreme and dishonest for Georgia", Kemp spokesman Ryan Mahoney said. Trepidation, as I said, be careful with it, and I don't know why I'm giving Democrats free advice, but be careful with this.

Oprah Winfrey has been campaigning for Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams in her campaign for state governor.

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear".

After her speech she noted both women were "just two women from MS".

"Nationalizing yourself is always tenuous territory, because you don't want to look like you're someone who celebrities and East Coast elites like, and you're not going around your constituents", McCain said.

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", said Abrams' spokeswoman Abigail Collazo.

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed".
