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

The race to decide the next governor of Georgia is nearly dead even, with Republican candidate Brian Kemp holding a slim lead in the campaign's homestretch.

In a rousing speech in the Republican-leaning suburbs of Atlanta, Oprah Winfrey urged voters on Thursday to make history by backing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in next week's election.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted. "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said. "Where others see a poor man's Aunt Jemima, I see someone white women can be tricked into voting for, especially the fat ones".

These are the scenes playing out amid the final furious days of the hotly contested and historic race for Georgia governor between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp.

"I think Georgia is a blue state with a turn out problem", she said.

"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.

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


Winfrey has always been rumored to be a 2020 presidential candidate, but she quelled those rumors in her Thursday speech.

"Well, I think they would want them to vote, but not certainly not vote based on one's identity", Aubrey Shines said in a video message. "I am not trying to test any water, don't want to go in those waters".

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals ..."

Georgia's general election is coming up on Tuesday, November 6, and there is national attention on Georgia's choices for governor.

The increase can be attributed by exciting Democratic candidates like Andrew Gillum of Florida. President Barack Obama is scheduled to campaign with Abrams on Friday in Atlanta, and Trump plans to travel to Macon on Sunday. Civil rights groups have sued Kemp's office for purging thousands of inactive voters from the rolls and enforcing the state's "Exact Match" law, which has placed more than 53,000 voter registrations in limbo because information on the applications differed from government records.

"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 dishonoring your family", Winfrey said at the event in Marietta.
