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.

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.
