  • Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support 'This Ain't Hollywood This Is Georgia'

Kemp is trying to extend the Republican domination in Georgia, which hasn't elected a Democrat as governor since 1998. Winfrey has traveled to Georgia to campaign for Abrams, whose potential victory would make her the first African American woman to be governor in USA history.

"I heard Oprah is in town today". She said Kemp's restrictions raised "grave concerns for the Court about the differential treatment inflicted on a group of individuals who are predominantly minorities".

Vice President Mike Pence, left, and GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, right, wave to supporters at Dalton Convention Center in Dalton on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018.

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020.

"I have earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself".


"Let me make it clear", the chat show host said.

Speculation that Winfrey may pursue a White House run against President Donald Trump has been swirling since January, when she delivered a powerful speech at the Golden Globes. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote". He chided Republicans, including Kemp, for opposing the Affordable Care Act and only recently turning to ads that tell voters GOP candidates will protect insurance access for Americans with once-disqualifying health conditions. "I came for myself, and I approve this message".

Though Oprah is playing it off like a grassroots campaign, her presence ejects much elitism into the political debate, being that she lives full time in a left-wing coastal haven. "And we've got a message for all of Stacey's Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

"We now talk to more than 700 voters on an average day, and call volume has picked up considerably", Democratic Party of Georgia spokesman Seth Bringman said of their voter protection hotline.

"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", Winfrey said.
