Oprah hits campaign trail in push for America's first black female governor

Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support 'This Ain't Hollywood This Is Georgia' Watch: Battling for Attention Over Oprah Mike Pence Forced to Tell GOP Voters ‘I’m Kind of a Big Deal Too’

Pence was speaking at a campaign event for Republican Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. "I don't want to run, OK?"

Kemp - who, as Georgia secretary of state, is also in charge of elections and voter registration - faced backlash after it was reported his office had put more than 53,000 voter applications on hold, almost 70% of which are from African-Americans, because they failed to clear the state's controversial "exact match" standard.

Despite how presidential she looks on the campaign trail, don't expect Oprah to throw her name in the ring for the 2020 presidential election.

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections. And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand for myself".

"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.

"She's home!" Winfrey says in the video, standing at a door.

She made a decision to lend her celebrity, she said, after watching how Abrams "handles" herself "in the midst of the onslaught of hate and vitriol". "And I think the problem is that we are not getting straight answers from the person responsible for guarding the public trust". "Are you voting for her?" she asks. "I mean, this is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

Noting that he heard Winfrey was in the Peach State, Pence said, "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: this ain't Hollywood".

Kemp, known for championing voter restrictions, is the GOP nominee for governor in an extremely competitive race against Stacey Abrams, the minority leader of Georgia's House of Representatives.

Abrams would be the first black female governor in American history, and she's sought the post as an unapologetic liberal trying to draw new voters to the polls and prove that Georgia's growth and diversity make it a legitimate two-party battleground.

Stacey Abrams just may win.

Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia past year, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

While critics of Pence have tried to catch him in a "gotcha!" moment by pointing out that Georgia has a booming film industry, that doesn't negate the fact that Hollywood is the hub of entertainment and a symbol of coastal elitism.
