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

Declaring herself inspired to rally behind the "bold and bodacious" Stacey Abrams, Oprah Winfrey jumped into the 2018 midterm elections today, saying she wanted to be part of the historic campaign.

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey campaigned for Abrams this week on Thursday by knocking on doors with the potential governor and giving a speech - and she she was accused of some serious race-baiting because of it.

"He's the one that's going to come and get everyone motivated to get everyone to come to the polls for Stacey Abrams", said Wnukowski.

Vice President Mike Pence bit back at Hollywood's coming out to Georgia and pushing Abrams on voters. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote". Meanwhile, 1.6 percent said they support Libertarian candidate Ted Metz and 4.8 percent said they are not sure whom they support. "I'm kind of a big deal, too".

In Georgia, Abrams' Republican rival Brian Kemp called the calls "vile" and "contrary to the highest ideals of our state and country". "I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain", she said. After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams.

Though sometimes mentioned as a 2020 presidential candidate, Winfrey has demurred on her intentions. "[She] has been down to Mar-A-Lago.until I ran for office we did very well". I'm not trying to test any waters.

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. "I think when you look like you care too much about celebrity endorsements, especially after you haven't been elected for first time, you see people like Eric Cantor, Wendy Davis, Kelly Ayotte - these are people who nationalize themselves too much". "I've got a message for all Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends".

The poll, which had a margin of error of 3 percentage points, was the latest to suggest that the Election Day vote could end with Kemp and Abrams advancing to a December runoff if neither receives a majority of the vote.

Taking into account the historical voting patterns and the representation of African Americans in USA politics, Abrams' campaign has drawn much public attention. "And Brian Kemp is going to do just that".

Abrams is looking to maximize turnout among nonwhites, liberal urban whites and just enough whites everywhere else, including a smattering of moderates and suburban Republicans who are disenchanted with Trump - a considerable overlap with the fan base that propelled Winfrey to her billionaire icon status.
