Oprah Rocks The House For Stacey Abrams

Oprah Rocks The House For Stacey Abrams

I don't want to run, ' she told the crowd.

Oprah Winfrey made an impassioned and animated speech Thursday in support of Stacey Abrams who is fighting a toss-up race for the Georgia governor seat.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted.

But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS". "She cares about medicaid expansion, keeping families together", she said.

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

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear".

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

McDowell said Thursday that Winfrey's campaign efforts on behalf of Abrams is "going to get that woman elected".

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck.

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.

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

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. Winfrey continued, despite the woman's surprise.
