  • Oprah Winfrey said she was not asked by anyone to support Ms Abrams

Abrams, who is polling nearly neck-and-neck with Kemp, told CNN that she had been unaware of her opponent's investigation into her party.

Despite how presidential she looks on the campaign trail, don't expect Oprah to throw her name in the ring for the 2020 presidential election.

"I'm not trying to test any waters", she joked.

In a direct call to women, Winfrey said it hasn't even been 100 years since women had the right to vote, and called for women to honor the legacy of those who fought for the right. Unlike Lively, who opted for the look sans shirt, the media mogul went the more conservative route paring her suit with a Tory Burch "vote" shirt ($68).

In a rousing speech in the Republican-leaning suburbs of Atlanta, Oprah Winfrey urged voters on Thursday to make history by backing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in next week's election.

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", said Abrams' spokeswoman Abigail Collazo. "But this is the South, people have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".




Civil rights groups sued Kemp in October over 50,000 voting registration applications that were placed on hold due to Georgia's "exact-match" law which requires personal information on voter applications to match state databases.

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals".

Numerous applications were flagged for failing to pass the state's "exact match" verification process, which requires that identification information on voter registration applications precisely match information already on file.

Winfrey did not mention Pence or the frequent GOP broadsides about "Hollywood" outsiders. Winfrey continued, despite the woman's surprise. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton.

Investigative journalism website WhoWhatWhy reported Sunday that they had received an email and document, sent from the Democratic Party of Georgia to election security experts, that highlights "massive" vulnerabilities within the state's online voter registration system.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
