Oprah Shocks Georgians While Canvasing for Stacey Abrams

Share

The former Georgia House of Representatives Minority Leader is in a hotly contested race against Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, and they are almost dead even in the polls. And so I promise that every single person who votes for Stacey Abrams, you're going to get a new auto!

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". I don't want to run.

Abrams would be the nation's first black female governor.

Georgia gubernatorial candidates (L-R) Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp are shown in a debate that also included Libertarian Ted Metz at Georgia Public Broadcasting in Midtown October 23, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Pakistani court acquits Christian woman on death row for blasphemy
Two Muslim women refused to drink from a container used by a Christian, and a few days later, a mob accused her of blasphemy. She had angered fellow Muslim farm workers by taking a sip of water from a cup she had fetched for them on a hot day.

Also rallying behind Ms Abrams is former president Barack Obama and Hollywood names such as Will Ferrel and Mark Ruffalo, who have all campaigned in the midterm elections runup.

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.

She said: "I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message". Kemp has since said the 53,000 Georgians would be able to vote in November.

The Georgia Democratic Party said in a statement Sunday that the "scurrilous claims are 100 percent false" and called the investigation "another example of abuse of power" by Kemp.

Manchester United star Luke Shaw has destroyed Paul Pogba on Twitter after the stressful 2-1 win over Everton at Old Trafford. Both players were outshined by Anthony Martial who won a penalty and scored what proved to be the eventual victor for United.

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event.

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

"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote", she added. "I'm not trying to test any waters", she said. As she battles Republican Brian Kemp and fights against Kemp's alleged efforts to to suppress voting, she has gotten tremendous support from America's queen herself: Oprah Winfrey. "And I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

Mimicking Winfrey's famous talk show giveaways, the message promises voters who select Abrams that, "Everybody gets a auto!"
