Oprah: 'Not Trying to Test Any Waters' With Abrams Speeches

Oprah: 'Not Trying to Test Any Waters' With Abrams Speeches

Oprah Winfrey is in Georgia today, too, knocking on doors and giving a speech to support Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is in a remarkably tight race for governor.

"Sending their support into the state, and some of them come into the state", he said.

"So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said.

After Winfrey's speech, Abrams climbed the stage to join a discussion and was greeted by chants from the audience. Winfrey gave a rallying cry about the importance of voting and the dark history of suppressed voting rights people fought to end. "She's a great speaker, but I liked her better when she was giving away Toyotas and refrigerators", Ingraham said.

Winfrey praised her as a "change-maker" who represents the values of all Georgians. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote".

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

She was in the state on Thursday campaigning for Abrams, cheering "everybody gets a vote!"

Winfrey did not mention Pence who, in appearances same day, charged Abrams with being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals" and derided Winfrey's presence as well as a recent campaign appearance for Abrams by Will Ferrell.

"Surprise, surprise", Winfrey, 64, said.

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

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already. "I am here because I want you to remind others of the power".

"I said, when we were watching it, 'If that women can get folks to eat pizza with a cauliflower crust on it, she is going to get that woman elected the first black female governor.' She took people to church", the co-host added.
