Oprah Rocks The House For Stacey Abrams

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

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.

Winfrey also spoke in Georgia Thursday on behalf of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams, comments that earned prominent coverage on the major cable news networks.

"I don't want to go in those waters!"

The Georgia governor's race is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation and is attracting top surrogates from both parties in the final days before the election. The talk show icon, who rarely makes political endorsements, drew cheers when she said she's a registered independent who was not in Georgia at anyone's request. With Metz consistently pulling down just a couple of points of support, no poll of the race so far has either Kemp nor Abrams breaking 50 percent.

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".

Pence campaigned in Georgia on Thursday in support of Brian Kemp, Abrams' opponent.

Mother reunites with son after abduction 31 years earlier
He also faces extradition to Canada on an abduction charge on completion of his prosecution south of the border. Lyneth Mann-Lewis found out last week that authorities had found her son, Jermaine Mann, in the United States.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

She was not there to push her own presidential campaign plans, reports CNN.

As a black woman, Winfrey noted her kinship to two groups historically denied ballot access in the United States.

Kemp is trying to extend the Republican domination in Georgia, which hasn't elected a Democrat as governor since 1998.

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed, for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey said.
