Midterm elections 2018: Who is Stacey Abrams? Georgia politician backed by Oprah

'I approve this message': Oprah makes rare political appearance in support of Georgian candidate Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby

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

On Thursday's The Ingraham Angle, host Laura Ingraham took issue with the speech Oprah Winfrey gave Thursday morning while campaigning in support of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Marietta, Georgia.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly 7 million registered voters have cast ballots already. "She had all the celebrities in 2016", Hurt said.

Someone out front, meanwhile, was wearing a giant chicken suit and holding a sign that read "too chicken to debate", an allusion to Kemp withdrawing from a debate scheduled on Sunday in favor of appearing in Macon with Trump.

Lewis, who represents a district in the Atlanta area, was attending an event for Abrams headlined by Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah preemptively scolded the crowd of reporters witnessing her Georgia performance against making any speculation her appearance was in service of a run for the White House in 2020.

She used the cover of Goop Magazine to announce her engagement in January, after dating 47-year-old Falchuk for three years. She made a quick outfit change during the reception, wearing a short Stella McCartney jumpsuit "for '80s party jams".

Kemp did not address the robocalls at his only scheduled campaign stop on Saturday, at a Cuban restaurant in a north-Atlanta suburb. He then blasted Abrams' policy pitches on health care and education.

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

As a TV crew from MSNBC tried to film the hecklers being removed, a Kemp supporter physically blocked their path and the view of their lens.

That was a far cry from his reaction when President Donald Trump " s people played the song at a rally hours after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.

Tensions grew after an Associated Press report in early October that more than 53,000 voter applications - almost 70 percent of them from black applicants - were on hold with Kemp's office ahead of the election. The state barred these voters from voting, claiming they could not confirm their citizenship, leading to the voting rights group to sue the state.

As Secretary of State, Kemp is also in charge of voter registration in Georgia.

The competing scenes - from the candidates, to the audiences, to the headliner guests - underscore the choice Georgia voters face Tuesday in one of the nation's premier midterm matchups.
