Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Mansfield Lahm Regional Airport Wednesday Oct. 31 2018 in Mansfield Ohio. Pence was in Ohio campaigning for fellow Republicans

"And Brian Kemp is going to do just that". Claiming that Abrams is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", he blasted Oprah Winfrey's appearance with the Democrat at a pair of town halls in metro Atlanta, as well as actor Will Ferrell's recent campaign appearance in Georgia. "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said.

As Winfrey was speaking, Vice President Mike Pence was in Dalton, about 70 miles north of Marietta, to add his support to Kemp.

Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.

Oprah Winfrey made it clear when she was in Georgia on Thursday to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams that she was not there to lay the groundwork for a presidential bid of her own.

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

Apple unveils new versions of MacBook air, iPad Pro
The new model also gets the thin "butterfly" keyboard from the standard MacBook, as well as a pair of USB-C inputs. Apple has removed the Touch ID, which is why it was good to hear that the Face ID works in any orientation.

Abrams would be the nation's first black female governor. Abrams' campaign has called on him to resign, while he has said that it is a manufactured problem at a time when registration is at a record high. I don't want to run.

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

Given the national interest in Georgia governor's race and the tight polls, voters there might expect to see even more "big guns" making their way to the state after Election Day. "I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already. Those allegations, which are largely unfair, have brought another former president into the discussion: former Georgia governor Jimmy Carter, who amplified calls for Kemp to resign his current position. He's banking on running up wide margins outside metro Atlanta and holding most of the GOP votes closer to the city. In January, when she gave a speech at the Golden Globe Awards, it ignited speculation that she too may be looking to run for president in 2020.
