Oprah door-knocks for Democratic candidate in Georgia

Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's raceMore

"I absolutely am voting for her", Denise replied.

Pence "said Thursday a vote for Brian Kemp is tantamount to support for President Donald Trump".

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

Ms Winfrey called Ms Abrams a "changemaker" who represented the values of all Georgians, where Atlanta is the capital city.

"And I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams's liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", he added. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too".

Perhaps even more than President Barack Obama, who will campaign for Abrams on Friday, Winfrey's appeal closely aligns with Abrams' political pitch. I don't wanna go in those waters, ' she said, shaking her head and waving her finger.

"I am an independent woman; I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do when I want to do it. I paid for myself and I approve this message".

According to RealClearPolitics's average of polls, Abrams and her Republican opponent Brian Kemp are in an extremely close race, with Kemp up by 1 percentage point. If elected, she would be the first black woman elected governor in the United States.

The state requires identification information on voter registration applications to precisely match information already on file with the Georgia Department of Driver Services or the Social Security Administration.

She encouraged women of all races - "sisters ... not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago. She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching ... oppression ... suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

The 64-year-old media titan shared a video on her Instagram page holding a clipboard and knocking on the door of a voter named Denise.

After Winfrey's speech, Abrams climbed the stage to join a discussion and was greeted by chants from the audience.

"The Democratic party, that the governor, the young lady that's running there... is the party that gave the South, where you are Oprah, the KKK, it gave us the Jim Crow laws that were there", he also said.
