Racist robocall targets Stacey Abrams, Oprah in Georgia governor’s race

Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby The Latest: Trump says Yale-educated Abrams isn't qualified

"I'll be going out this weekend in my home state of NY and I wanted to especially encourage all those in Georgia to show up for Stacey Abrams who's running for governor to better the lives of all Georgians", he said in a video post on Twitter.

The Channel 2 Action News/Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll found that 46.9 percent of the respondents said they support Abrams, compared with 46.7 percent who said they support Kemp.

Kemp made public that the debate would have occurred, alleging that Stacey Abrams had scheduling problems that would have made her unable to attend the debate.

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear". Almost 5 percent of respondents said they were undecided, while 1.6 percent said they meant to support a libertarian candidate.

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck, with Ms Abrams up against Republican nominee Brian Kemp. After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams. "That state will be in big, big trouble very quickly, and the people of Georgia don't want that".

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams.

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state". "I've got a message for all Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends".

"She is not qualified to be the governor of Georgia, not qualified", Trump said. I'm not trying to test any waters.

While Abrams has touted her experience working with Republicans as minority leader in the Georgia legislature, her positions on health care, education spending, criminal justice and gun regulations make her an unapologetic liberal.

Republicans in Georgia, including Kemp, have pushed for strict voter ID laws, citizenship checks and aggressive voter roll maintenance in the name of protecting elections against fraud and noncitizens voting.

After her speech she noted both women were "just two women from MS".
