Stacey Abrams Slams Brian Kemp’s ‘Desperate’ Hacking Claim Against Georgia Democrats

  • 'I approve this message': Oprah makes rare political appearance in support of Georgian candidate

Abrams herself called the investigation "desperate" and characterized it as politically motivated in an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday morning.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted.

"I'm not trying to test any waters", she joked. "Don't want to go in those waters".

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.

She encouraged black and female voters to go to the polls, telling them that "for anybody here who has ancestor who didn't have right to vote. you are dishonoring your family".

Before Oprah and the former president came to town, comedic actor Will Ferrell ("Step Brothers", "Old School", "The Campaign") was in Georgia going door to door in support of the Democratic candidate.

Mimicking Winfrey's famous talk show giveaways, the message promises voters who select Abrams that, "Everybody gets a auto!" "I mean, this is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

Amico said she doesn't think Georgia is a red state. Pence is scheduled to appear with Republican nominee Brian Kemp at three rallies around the state.

"In four days, we get to stand up on November 6, and we get to say this is who we are because we are Georgia", Abrams said during the rally.

The Georgia gubernatorial race had already been fraught with a race-laden debate over ballot access and voter suppression.

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

The headline "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" sat front-and-centre on the secretary of state's government website - directly beneath a voter's guide to polling locations.

Abrams is looking to maximize turnout among nonwhites, liberal urban whites and just enough whites everywhere else, including a smattering of moderates and suburban Republicans who are disenchanted with Trump - a considerable overlap with the fan base that propelled Winfrey to her billionaire icon status.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
