Oprah Stumps For Democrats In Georgia. Mike Pence Responds Brilliantly

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

Oprah Winfrey is literally going door-to-door in Georgia to help canvas for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia a year ago, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "She's a great speaker, but I liked her better when she was giving away Toyotas and refrigerators", Ingraham said. Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.

She called on the disenfranchised to use their power to vote.

Pence made the remark at a rally in Savannah, just hours after Oprah Winfrey gave a passionate endorsement of Kemp's Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, who is looking to become the nation's first black female governor.

Speaking Sunday to CNN's "State of the Union", Abrams echoed that criticism, and accused Kemp of repeatedly attempting to supress votes.

Kemp said the election was about "this generation and generations to come and the kind of state that we leave them".

He added: "The first step for wealth creation is usually the equity market; Asia and the U.S. share the same characteristics". Last year, 106 new billionaires were created there - equivalent to over two new billionaires being minted each week.

The vase depicts a scene from The Odyssey , in which Odysseus is strapped to the mast as he passes the deadly sirens. They found a Greek trading vessel whose design had previously been seen only on ancient pottery.

The Kemp event was also hit by a number of protesters.

As a TV crew from MSNBC tried to film the hecklers being removed, a Kemp supporter physically blocked their path and the view of their lens.

After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams.

Much of the final stretch of the race was consumed by a bitter battle over race and access to the polls. Kemp's office has suspended processing 53,000 voter registrations, 70 percent of which are for black Georgians.

A federal judge on Friday issued a blow to the GOP when she ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people affected by the states "exact match" to vote in this year's midterm elections on November 4. He called the controversy "manufactured". The state barred these voters from voting, claiming they could not confirm their citizenship, leading to the voting rights group to sue the state. He did so under the auspices of a 2017 state law passed under his urging, which requires an "exact match" between a voter registration form and government documents.

In a statement, Kemp said the lawsuit forced the state "to waste time and taxpayer dollars for the judge to tell us to do something that we already do".
