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

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey delivered an impassioned call to voters Thursday in a fiery stump speech in support of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

During an emotional high point of her address, Winfrey shamed non-voters for "dishonoring" and "disrespecting" late family members who weren't given the privilege of voting.

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", Winfrey said.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly 7 million registered voters have cast ballots already.

We choose hope over fear, we choose unity over division, we choose our allies over our enemies and we choose truth over lies". That's 20% more than all the anticipated votes in the mid-term elections of 2014, according to him.


Last-minute legal decisions, a racist robocall and a protester wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate".

"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.

On "Outnumbered", Washington Post editor and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Winfrey is an "entity unto herself", and her endorsement may carry some weight, but he believes Hollywood elites won't swing races for Democrats in next week's midterm elections.

"However, the Court finds that this burden - disseminating information about who may check proof of citizenship and training poll managers how to do so, as set forth below - is minimal compared to the potential loss of a right to vote altogether by a group of people". President Trump is rallying for Kemp on Sunday.

Kemp did not address the robocalls at his only scheduled campaign stop on Saturday, at a Cuban restaurant in a north-Atlanta suburb.

"I don't want to run, okay?" Two men protesting Kemp's immigration policy while Kemp was onstage were forcibly removed from the restaurant. As a TV crew from MSNBC tried to film the hecklers being removed, a Kemp supporter physically blocked their path. Kemp's office has suspended processing 53,000 voter registrations, 70 percent of which are for black Georgians. "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

She shared, "Georgia you've been on my mind and here's why".

In a statement, Kemp said the lawsuit forced the state "to waste time and taxpayer dollars for the judge to tell us to do something that we already do".

China wants to ‘very badly’ strike a trade deal with US
China's official Xinhua News Agency said that Xi accepted the call at Trump's invitation. "We're not on the cusp of a deal". He gave no indication whether they made progress on settling their escalating tariff war.
