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

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

Both campaigns are bringing in the "big guns" (as one Peach State politico put it) in the final days of the campaign-Oprah Winfrey and Mike Pence are in Georgia Thursday to campaign for Abrams and Kemp, respectively.

"The woman that she's supporting is not qualified to be the governor of Georgia by any stretch of the imagination", Trump said. Winfrey said. "I am here today because of Stacey Abrams".

Asked whether she is planning on voting for Abrams, the woman said yes - and that she has an early voting plan.

She added that she is in Georgia because of all the men and women throughout history who were "suppressed, repressed and oppressed for the right and the equality at the polls". I don't want to run.

Winfrey told the crowd that anyone that chose not to vote is ignoring the challenges others had to face. "We have more voters who participate in run-offs than she does", the source says. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote". "I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", the Vice President told supporters of Brian Kemp, Abrams' Republican opponent who stands accused of massive voter suppression in his current role of Secretary of State.

In the past two years, his most memorable moment was that time he spent a quarter million in taxpayer money flying to a football game just so he could pointedly walk out in protest.

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections", Winfrey said, "but rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community". "I think people want to know: Will it work?"

"I got a message for all of Stacy Abram's liberal Hollywood friends", he continued.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams.
