Oprah surprises Georgia residents while campaigning for Stacey Abrams

Oprah Winfrey makes rare campaign appearance for Stacey Abrams

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

- The eyes of the nation are on Georgia and the race for the Governor's seat. Abrams faces off against Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R).

"You are on the precipice of an historical election", she said, assuring them, "Nobody paid for me to come here; nobody even asked me to come here".

In another incident, about 40 black seniors were ordered off a bus taking them from a senior center to early vote by county officials, who said they considered the trip improperly political. In a video Winfrey posted on her Instagram page, one woman jumped when she opened the door.

The activist group called The Cliffsofmoher "the most recent victim of the cruel annual spectacle". Moore has not spoken to the media following the race but he is reportedly "shattered".


"We are not powerless", she added. Don't want to go in those waters.

Mike Pence, who was in town to stump for Kemp said, "I heard Oprah was in town today and I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day". "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain. I hope you are going to listen to my endorsement", Trump said.

Oprah preemptively scolded the crowd of reporters witnessing her Georgia performance against making any speculation her appearance was in service of a run for the White House in 2020.

"I'll be going out this weekend in my home state of NY and I wanted to especially encourage all those in Georgia to show up for Stacey Abrams who's running for governor to better the lives of all Georgians", he said in a video post on Twitter.

Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool FC
The Liverpool boss and his side travel to Belgrade, Serbia to take on Red Star in the competition's group stage. We are here to play football and focus on that. "I will not make it " Shaqiri said" or "wanted" actually".


Winfrey was energetic in her praise for Abrams and her policy proposals, but she focused her most impassioned remarks on voting rights, delivering a pointed rebuke to people who might willfully stay home along with a stirring evocation of her native South's racist past. For decades, the media mogul has defied conventions and amassed a rare kind of fandom that defies racial, cultural and class boundaries. Democrat Andrew Gillum could become the first black Floridian governor, which is why The Road to Power carried out the robocalls in both Florida and Georgia.

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

The Abrams camp likewise blasted the move but took a shot at Kemp and his highest profile supporter, President Donald Trump, who is coming to Georgia to campaign Sunday.
