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

Oprah Winfrey poses in the press room with the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills Calif. In the final days in one of the nation’s hottest governor’s races Oprah Win

Oprah Winfrey was met with a boisterous reception as she rallied support for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams on Thursday afternoon. If elected, she would be the first black woman elected governor in the United States. He wields guns in his ads and lambastes Abrams as a tool of "socialists" and "billionaires" who "want to turn Georgia into California".

On "The Five", Jesse Watters said Winfrey is an incredible and charismatic speaker, and he believes her endorsement will push Abrams across the finish line.

"I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message", Winfrey said, explaining that she tracked down Abrams' cell phone number and called her to say she wanted to offer assistance in the final days of the campaign.

Oprah preemptively scolded the crowd of reporters witnessing her Georgia performance against making any speculation her appearance was in service of a run for the White House in 2020. I don't want to run!

"She goes, 'I only back candidates that I feel inspired by and that are authentic.' And notice who she didn't campaign for is Hillary Clinton", Watters said. I'm not trying to test any waters.

"All of us may have been created equal, but if you're woke. you've got sense enough to know that everybody is not treated equally", she said.

In an apparent reference to the controversy, Winfrey said, "Every single one of us - every single one of us - has the same power at the polls, and every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with" - she paused for resounding, prolonged applause by the audience - "cannot be suppressed and can not be denied". Winfrey continued, despite the woman's surprise.

Abrams is running neck and neck with Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Trump Plans Big Change to Citizenship Rules
Neither Graham nor Trump gave any details about the latest plan, and the White House did not respond to a request for comment. The US will also send about 5,200 active-duty troops to "harden" the border , the Pentagon announced on Monday.


"And I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Pence said, after drawing boos when he mentioned that "Oprah is in town" and noted that actor Will Ferrell was recently in the state for Democrats.

The competing scenes - from the candidates, to the audiences, to the headliner guests - underscore the choice Georgia voters face Tuesday in one of the nation's premier midterm matchups.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Abrams tomorrow. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

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.

Winfrey did not mention Pence or the frequent GOP broadsides about "Hollywood" outsiders.

She chose to lend her celebrity, she said, after watching how Abrams "handles" herself "in the midst of the onslaught of hate and vitriol".
