Brian Kemp opens 'cyber crimes' probe into Georgia Democrats

'I approve this message': Oprah makes rare political appearance in support of Georgian candidate

Abrams and Kemp are both condemning an automated telephone call filled with racist and anti-Semitic statements.

Kemp is now facing off with Democrat Stacey Abrams for the governorship in a tight race. The media mogul touched on voter suppression in the state and encouraged voters to cast their ballots.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat and former Georgia governor, has called on Kemp to step down from the secretary of state position because of what Carter said was a conflict of interest. "Are you voting for her?" she asks.

Winfrey has always been rumored to be a 2020 presidential candidate, but she quelled those rumors in her Thursday speech.

The entertainment icon, who rarely makes political endorsements, drew cheers when she said she's a registered independent who was not in Georgia at anyone's request.

Kemp's office, which supervises elections in Georgia, offered no evidence publicly for launching the investigation two days before voters go to the polls to decide which party will control Congress and to select three dozen state governors. But Winfrey had a message for those speculating that she may pursue a political bid of her own: She's not running.

"I have earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself". "I don't want to run, OK? I'm not trying to test any waters", she said. "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

"I'm excited to be in a dead heat because we're going to turn out voters who never voted before", Abrams said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press".

She made a decision to lend her celebrity, she said, after watching how Abrams "handles" herself "in the midst of the onslaught of hate and vitriol". "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

And someone out front was wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate", alluding to Kemp withdrawing from a debate scheduled Sunday in favor of appearing in Macon with President Donald Trump.

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals". "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams".

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.

Despite how presidential she looks on the campaign trail, don't expect Oprah to throw her name in the ring for the 2020 presidential election.
