Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female United States governor

"I don't want to run, OK?"

If Abrams wins next week, the former Georgia state House minority leader would become the country's first female African-American governor.

She was in the state on Thursday campaigning for Abrams, cheering "everybody gets a vote!"

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", Winfrey said.

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". "You are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said.




John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights movement and the dance floor, provided some needed respite by getting down to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams before a rally for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Winfrey called Abrams a "change-maker" who represents the values of all Georgians. Winfrey continued, despite the woman's surprise.

Vice President Mike Pence fired back Thursday at Oprah Winfrey and other "Hollywood liberals" who were campaigning for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for the gubernatorial race in Georgia. She's so passionate about her candidacy that she's chose to go door to door to canvassing for Abrams. "I'm kind of a big deal too and I've got a message, I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends".

In the past two years, his most memorable moment was that time he spent a quarter million in taxpayer money flying to a football game just so he could pointedly walk out in protest.

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor. He's banking on running up wide margins outside metro Atlanta and holding most of the GOP votes closer to the city. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020.
