Midterm elections 2018: Who is Stacey Abrams? Georgia politician backed by Oprah

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

"I think that's what you are hearing from Oprah".

- Both the campaigns for Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp have come out to denounce a racist robocall that is now targeting Georgians.

Abrams, who is polling nearly neck-and-neck with Kemp, told CNN that she had been unaware of her opponent's investigation into her party.

As Winfrey stumped for Abrams in the state, Veep Mike Pence was nearby to deliver some of his very best insults to the talk-show host billionaire on behalf of Abrams' political opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. "Don't want to go in those waters".

"Go with God, go with goal, go with your values, upholding everything we believe to be true about Stacey Abrams and why we're all voting for her", Winfrey said.

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

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. Vice President Mike Pence had the flawless response by channeling Will Ferrell in "Anchorman".

Halloween Candy Handed Out in Oregon Tests Positive for Meth
Their two children didn't ingest any of the same candy, police said. " neighbor James Smith told KATU ". Halloween candy handed out in Aloha, Oregon was tainted with meth, officials said on November 1, 2018.

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. "But this is the South, people have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams.

A federal judge on Friday issued a blow to the GOP when she ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people affected by the states "exact match" to vote in this year's midterm elections on November 4. 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.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams.

"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote", she added.

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

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds. "Do you have an early voting plan?"
