"I don't want to run, OK?"

Vice President Mike Pence tried to share a fairly typical Republican talking point in Georgia on Thursday, slamming Hollywood and the celebrities visiting the state to support Democrat Stacey Abrams, including Oprah Winfrey and Will Ferrell.

"And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", he said.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", she said to a mostly female audience north of downtown Atlanta.

Asked whether she is planning on voting for Abrams, the woman said yes - and that she has an early voting plan.

"It has been a really interesting experience because when you knock on a door, you don't know what people are going to do or say or how they're going to react", Ms Winfrey said in one of the videos.




Winfrey pointed out that she's an Independent, and she votes for her "values".

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

Winfrey also spoke in Georgia Thursday on behalf of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams, comments that earned prominent coverage on the major cable news networks.

The Republican Party has held Georgia's governor position since 2003. I was just sitting at home in California minding my own business but I could not stop thinking about what's going on down here.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020.

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections", Winfrey said, "but rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community".
