Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female U.S. governor

Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female U.S. governor

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck.

Abrams has been calling on Kemp to step down from his position as Georgia's secretary of state while running for governor because she sees the position's role in supervising elections as a conflict of interest.

"I am an independent woman", Winfrey said.

She added a note to the throng of media gathered for the event, urging against any reboot of recent speculation that she might run for president in 2020.

Pence attempted to downplay the significance of Winfrey's celebrity status, telling the crowd: "I'm kind of a big deal too".

Trump criticized former President Barack Obama, saying he was told about potential Russian meddling before the 2016 election but didn't take public actions because he thought Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election. "This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams". Trepidation, as I said, be careful with it, and I don't know why I'm giving Democrats free advice, but be careful with this.

But Georgia Democrats, Abrams chief among them, say the policies are purposefully heavy-handed and make voting more hard for legal citizens, especially minority voters that tend to lean Democrat. "Be very careful. Don't make predictions before Election Day". "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said. "I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said.

Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

She was in the state on Thursday campaigning for Abrams, cheering "everybody gets a vote!" "And I think she brings a different type of credibility".

In an apparent reference to the controversy, Winfrey said, "Every single one of us - every single one of us - has the same power at the polls, and every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with" - she paused for resounding, prolonged applause by the audience - "cannot be suppressed and can not be denied". As she battles Republican Brian Kemp and fights against Kemp's alleged efforts to to suppress voting, she has gotten tremendous support from America's queen herself: Oprah Winfrey. Can you imagine having your doorbell ring and finding her on the other side?
