  • Watch: Battling for Attention Over Oprah Mike Pence Forced to Tell GOP Voters ‘I’m Kind of a Big Deal Too’

She faces Republican Brian Kemp, who was appearing with Vice President Mike Pence at a trio of events in the state Thursday.

Winfrey also said she invited herself to campaign for Abrams, and had not been brought in by anybody but herself. "I paid for myself and I approve this message".

The president was asked about Oprah Winfrey campaigning in Georgia.

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections. And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

Alaska governor Sarah Palin, not slowed by her loss on the GOP presidential ticket, campaigned for Chambliss and helped him win the runoff a few weeks later.

"I've earned the right to do what I want to do when I want to do it".

To applause and laughter, the media titan continued that she was "not trying to test any waters".

Winfrey sparked 2020 chatter earlier this year after her inspiring speech last January at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award.


He declared that he had "a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

Oprah Winfrey has been campaigning for Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams in her campaign for state governor.

"Brian Kemp's getting the support of all kinds of hardworking, good people all across Georgia and Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", he argued.

"I heard Oprah is in town today".

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". 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.

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

And, if Kemp has his way, a so-called "religious liberty" bill will pass into law which could dry up Georgia's "Hollywood" money.
