Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

She said: "Oprah Winfrey has inspired so many of us through the years with her unparalleled ability to form real connections and strengthen the bonds of family and community".

Ms Winfrey blasted attacks on Ms Abrams that she says she saw in her hotel room - Republican ads casts Ms Abrams as "too extreme" and "radical" for Georgia - as "noise" that is "designed to confound you with fear". "Don't want to go in those waters".

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. It goes on to compare the gubernatorial candidate to a "poor man's Aunt Jemimah" who "white women can be tricked into voting for, especially the fat ones".

During a CNN interview, Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams said the investigation is an attempt to distract voters two days before the election. Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Kemp on Thursday, and criticized the star power Abrams' campaign has attracted. If elected, Abrams would be the first black woman governor in Georgia. "I think if anything if just annoys people and it turns them off". She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching. oppression. suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

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

It was a wedding gift from Queen Victoria's son, the future King Edward VII , to his wife Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall were also on hand for the banquet for 150 guests.

Also rallying behind Ms Abrams is former president Barack Obama and Hollywood names such as Will Ferrel and Mark Ruffalo, who have all campaigned in the midterm elections runup. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too".

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.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Press Secretary Candice Broce says in the press release.
