Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's race

Oprah Winfrey Campaigns With Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

"She's a great speaker, but I liked her better when she was giving away Toyotas and refrigerators", Ingraham said.

Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp are locked in a tight race that offers a stark choice in a state accustomed to business-minded, centrist governors.

And in a nod to the allegations of voter suppression that have marked the gubernatorial race, Winfrey told the crowd that "every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with, can not be suppressed and can not be denied". The state has not elected a Democrat governor since 1998.

The fight in many ways mirrors a national debate about balancing access to the polls with security at the polls. "She's a woman who dared believe she could change the state of Georgia".

The law is the subject of a lawsuit brought by civil rights groups now working its way through federal courts.

Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.

The ACLU announced on Friday that another court had sided against Kemp in a different voting rights case.

Ross' ruling allows the naturalized citizens to vote in Tuesday's midterm election if they present proof of citizenship at the polls.

The ruling on absentee ballots stems from a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union and others against Kemp and county registrars.

The cultural icon said she is a political independent who has "earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself".

That was him saying, 'I'm gonna do me.' It's a f--ing joke. "I saw when he kind of slowed down, he knew what he was doing. Support on the record for Montgomery from players was lukewarm after the game and even less so off the record.

Kemp said in a statement that he was "honored" to have Walker's endorsement. As he blasted Trump's decision to send troops to the Southern border, Obama failed to note that he and President George W. Bush also dispatched military personnel to the border, even if not immediately prior to an election.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", said Pence, who is not from Georgia.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.

Kemp's office said voters have several ways to address questions or complaints: a dedicated call center, an online portal implemented by Kemp and an email system for addressing issues.
