Oprah, Pence visiting Georgia in deadlocked governor's race

Oprah, Pence visiting Georgia in deadlocked governor's race

On Thursday's The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham took issue with the speech Oprah Winfrey gave Thursday morning while campaigning in support of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Marietta, Georgia.

Voting rights groups say Kemp, the state's chief elections officer, can't impartially oversee his own election and his office has a history of voter suppression. During a debate against Abrams he said he would not recuse himself in other election-related issues. He was in Florida earlier for Andrew Gillum, who would be his state's first black governor. Kemp has also swung back at Abrams by saying that she is advocating for "illegals to vote" for her, which Abrams denies. And it has similarly spilled into the partisan arena.

53,000 voter registrations on hold due to new law.

The race between Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams has drawn wide national attention.

USA officials have told Reuters the support mission would be coordinated by the US military's Northern Command. A little more than 1,000 troops are already in place in Texas, with more "moving in today", he told reporters.

Lewis said to supporters at the rally that they should tell everyone they know to go vote.

Civil rights groups celebrated the ruling on naturalized citizens as a major victory. Voters who were flagged and still pending can still vote if they show official forms of identification at the polls, such as a valid or expired Georgia driver's license, a valid Georgia voter identification card, a valid student photo ID card issued by a Georgia school or a passport.

On Sunday, President Trump will also be in Georgia campaigning for Kemp. I heard Oprah was in town today.

"Despite this outcome, our concern remains that it is inappropriate to change long-standing procedures this close to an election", Broce said in a statement on the decision on absentee ballots.

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