Oprah jumps into contentious Georgia race, endorses Democrat Abrams

2018 Essence Festival New Orleans

Democrat Stacey Abrams is in a tight race with Republican Brian Kemp for Georgia's Gubernatorial seat, and both sides have pulled out all the stops with big-names campaigning to get voters to the polls.

Abrams would be the first black female governor in US history.

Winfrey called Abrams a "changemaker" who represents the values of all Georgians.

Kemp, Georgia's secretary of state, is campaigning to a conservative base in rural parts of the state, hoping to keep the seat red after current Gov. Nathan Deal completes his two terms.

Kemp dismissed her claims as a "farce" and said they're "absolutely not true".

Though sometimes mentioned as a 2020 presidential candidate, Winfrey has demurred on her intentions.
