Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

A Kemp campaign source, who insists the Republican will win on November 6, nonetheless says Kemp has the advantage in a runoff situation.

Kemp is a staunch conservative who has embraced U.S. President Donald Trump and the administration's hard-line on immigration. I'm not trying to test any waters.

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

"I was sitting at home in California, minding my own business, but I could not stop hearing about what's going on down here", Winfrey said, charming the crowd that had gathered to see her.

She added that Abrams is "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

She faces Republican Brian Kemp, who was appearing with Vice President Mike Pence at a trio of events in the state Thursday.

Oprah Winfrey returned to the campaign trail on Thursday for Stacey Abrams, a Democrat who is running for governor of Georgia, lamenting "all the noise", "crazy talk" and "vitriol" that is now part of political discourse. Her path to victory, as the campaign sees it, comes through activating voters who might have sat out past elections or never before cast a ballot while - at the same time, with the same message - appealing to political moderates, especially those tied into Atlanta's booming economy.

I told him I'm certain his election will lead to a great friendship between our peoples and a strengthening of Brazil-Israel ties. There is much evidence his candidacy was aided by a massive, probably illegal, disinformation campaign against his opponents.

Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.

"I'm an African-American woman who is charting a very different path to doing this", Abrams told CNN last month.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams. "I think people want to know: Will it work?"

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

Asked whether she is planning on voting for Abrams, the woman said yes - and that she has an early voting plan.

"I do", the woman responds.
