Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female United States governor

Oprah Winfrey makes rare campaign appearance for Stacey Abrams

Abrams would be the first black female governor in US history. "Are you voting for her?"

As Winfrey stumped for Abrams in the state, Veep Mike Pence was nearby to deliver some of his very best insults to the talk-show host billionaire on behalf of Abrams' political opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

"This ain't Hollywood, this is Georgia - and Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", Mr Pence said at a rally for Mr Kemp this week. I don't want to run. "I'm not testing the waters", she said.

"Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that". Pence said Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, referring to Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell.

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams", the vile message continues.

Staunch conservative Kemp, who embraces Trump's hard-line on immigration, brandishes a gun in his campaign ads, blasts Abrams as a tool of "socialists" and "Hollywood elites" who "want to turn Georgia into California".

Polls suggest Abrams and Kemp are deadlocked in one of the hottest matchups of the midterm elections. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

On Friday, a federal judge upheld an injunction against Kemp's implementation of the state's "Exact Match" voting law, which required voters whose registrations differed even slightly from their identifications to provide additional verification and led officials to throw out many absentee ballots that didn't match up. But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS".

Then she encouraged women of all races - "sisters. not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago.

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Press Secretary Candice Broce says in the press release.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
