Abrams: Trump is 'wrong', I am qualified to be Georgia's governor

Oprah Winfrey makes rare campaign appearance for Stacey Abrams

Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union "on Sunday, Abrams called the announcement a distraction and political move to sway voters in the final hours of the race".

Oprah Winfrey has quashed rumours that she will make a bid for the U.S. presidency by telling voters at a rally in Georgia, "I don't want to run". If elected, Abrams will be the first-ever American black female governor.

She touts her experience working with Republicans as a state legislative leader, but she doesn't back down on her promises to expand Medicaid insurance, prioritize public education and push for tighter gun restrictions.

Winfrey has always been rumored to be a 2020 presidential candidate, but she quelled those rumors in her Thursday speech.

She ruled that Georgia must immediately start allowing poll managers - not just deputy registrars - to clear flagged voters who show proof of citizenship.

She added a note to the throng of media gathered for the event, urging against any reboot of recent speculation that she might run for president in 2020. I don't want to run. "I don't want to go in those waters".

Susie Griggs, an Abrams supporter, said that Abrams is a Christian and has her vote.

Amico said she doesn't think Georgia is a red state.

In a direct call to women, Winfrey said it hasn't even been 100 years since women had the right to vote, and called for women to honor the legacy of those who fought for the right.

"This ain't Hollywood, this is Georgia - and Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", Mr Pence said at a rally for Mr Kemp this week.

Mr Pence has criticised Ms Abrams for using Ms Winfrey during her campaign. I am shocked!" Then Oprah got down to business, telling her "So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams.

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.

Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail.

Numerous applications were flagged for failing to pass the state's "exact match" verification process, which requires that identification information on voter registration applications precisely match information already on file.

"This ain't Hollywood!" Pence said at a speech in Savannah on Thursday.

Oprah also hosted two town halls with Abrams during her trip.

"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". They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton.
