Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby

Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, second left, and US Vice President Mike Pence at a Kemp rally held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on November 1, 2018.

The Democratic gubernatorial candidate got a boost this week when Winfrey knocked on doors to campaign for her and delivered a powerful speech to encourage black and other minority voters to head to the polls, but McCain said that might actually hurt Abrams.

She was in the state on Thursday campaigning for Abrams, cheering "everybody gets a vote!"

Oprah Winfrey, the coastal elite billionaire and queen of all media, went down to Georgia to stump for Democrats.

The Channel 2 Action News/Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll found that 46.9 percent of the respondents said they support Abrams, compared with 46.7 percent who said they support Kemp.

Speaking before a raucous crowd at historically Black Morehouse College in Atlanta, Obama never mentioned President Donald Trump or Abrams' Republican opponent Brian Kemp by name.

"I think Georgia is a blue state with a turn out problem", she said. She also said the election is about issues like expanding Medicaid insurance and focusing state spending on public education, job training and small business start-ups.

President Trump responded to Oprah Winfrey's appearances last week by claiming that he was friends with her - until he ran for office.

What was notable was the extent to which he didn't bash Winfrey, who has a high favorability rating, but linked himself to her career. "That state will be in big, big trouble very quickly, and the people of Georgia don't want that". "I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand because I'm thinking of running myself. I'm not testing the waters".

"We now talk to more than 700 voters on an average day, and call volume has picked up considerably", Democratic Party of Georgia spokesman Seth Bringman said of their voter protection hotline. Pence said Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, referring to Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell. If elected, Abrams would become the first African-American woman governor of a state.

"She pledges as governor, to continue her 11-year career from the state legislature of opposing even the most common sense limits on abortion and has called herself a 'staunch defender' of killing babies in abortions", reports the outlet.
