Oprah Shocks Georgians While Canvasing for Stacey Abrams

Adjust Comment Print

Oprah Winfrey hit Georgia on Thursday to campaign for Stacey Abrams, a longtime Democratic state lawmaker hoping to become the first black female governor in American history.

The two-paragraph press release from Kemp's office - titled "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" - reads: "After a failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system, the Secretary of State's office opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia on the evening of Saturday, November 3, 2018".

"I don't want to run, OK?"

The race to decide the next governor of Georgia is nearly dead even, with Republican candidate Brian Kemp holding a slim lead in the campaign's homestretch. I'm not trying to test any waters. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers. If the person shows up to the polls without proper documentation then officials must let them come back with proof or allow them to cast a provisional ballot, giving them until the Friday after the election to return with proof of citizenship. A top Abrams aide said both Kemp and Trump have contributed to a poisonous atmosphere, and that Kemp has been silent on previous racially loaded attacks on Abrams. Big names have duly been attracted to the state: Donald Trump is due to stage a rally in Macon on Sunday, an event which prompted Kemp to withdraw from a scheduled debate.

Lion Air crash: Indonesian plane search focuses on fuselage
Specialist ships and remotely operated underwater vehicles have been deployed to search for the plane's hull and flight recorders. In April, the airline announced a firm order to buy 50 Boeing 737 MAX 10 jets, with a list price of $6.24 billion.

Rebecca DeHart, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, called this a "political stunt" that showed why Kemp shouldn't be trusted, or overseeing an election where he is a governor.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Abrams tomorrow.

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed. But I also think they're excited by the possibility it could work".

The 64-year-old media titan shared a video on her Instagram page holding a clipboard and knocking on the door of a voter named Denise. "Canvassing for #StaceyAbramsforGovernor", Winfrey posted. 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.
