  • Oprah Invokes Lynching, Oppression in Campaign Speech for Stacey Abrams

"I heard Oprah is in town today. No one asked me to come here", Winfrey said at a rally in Marietta, adding that she is both an independent woman, and a registered political independent.

She said that she called Abrams up and offered to make campaign appearances for her. Winfrey said to Abrams, "You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said. I don't want to run.

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand for myself". "She threads the needle of inclusion in a really interesting way, in my mind, where if you're listening to that speech, it's hard not to feel inspired, it's hard to make yourself feel left out. I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do", she said. She dispelled rumors that she may be considering a presidential run herself and said she had simply chosen to come to the state to support Abrams.

Stacey Abrams, who is vying to become the nation's first female African-American governor, got a big campaign push in Georgia from Oprah Winfrey ahead of Election Day.

He added, "I know what I do good and what I do bad". "He's saying if you don't want to be called the enemy, then get the story right, be accurate and report the story the way I want it reported", she concluded.

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

Oprah surprised some Georgia residents after she went door knocking, saying it was her very first time canvassing for any political candidate and that she's optimistic about Abrams. "And Brian Kemp is going to do just that".

Vice President Mike Pence campaigned for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.

And, if Kemp has his way, a so-called "religious liberty" bill will pass into law which could dry up Georgia's "Hollywood" money.
