Oprah, Pence offer competing visions of 'Georgia values'

Winfrey said. "I am here today because of Stacey Abrams".

She chose to lend her celebrity, she said, after watching how Abrams "handles" herself "in the midst of the onslaught of hate and vitriol".

"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 for the right for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey cried.

Ms Winfrey, who has dismissed rumours she is planning to run for President in 2020, also endorsed Democrat Barack Obama before the 2008 election.

Winfrey told the crowd that anyone that chose not to vote is ignoring the challenges others had to face.

"You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state", she added. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy". "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".

"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.

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

Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I think people want to know: Will it work?" Pence said Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, referring to Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell.

Oprah surprised some Georgia residents after she went door knocking, saying it was her very first time canvassing for any political candidate and that she's optimistic about Abrams. "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.
