Oprah surprises Georgia residents while campaigning for Stacey Abrams

Oprah surprises Georgia residents while campaigning for Stacey Abrams

The 78-year-old civil rights legend was spotted dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell Williams at a campaign event Thursday for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor.

Winfrey called Abrams a "change-maker" who represents the values of all Georgians.

"I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey says to a shocked Georgia resident who opened her front door to find the media mogul on her doorstep holding a clipboard.

"Brian Kemp's getting the support of all kinds of hard-working, good people all across Georgia, and Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Pence said.

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, prioritise public education and push for tighter gun restrictions.

Walker had previously supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, telling TMZ Sports that he believed Trump would be the best man for the job. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020. "She had all the celebrities in 2016", Hurt said. "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said. "I paid for myself and I approve this message".

"And I say this to Oprah, how is this living our 'best life now?' the Fox News host continued. I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said.

"Surprised?" the woman, named Denise, said.

"This raises grave concerns for the Court about the differential treatment inflicted on a group of individuals who are predominantly minorities, ' Ross" order said.

As Winfrey stumped for Abrams in the state, Veep Mike Pence was nearby to deliver some of his very best insults to the talk-show host billionaire on behalf of Abrams' political opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

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.

Friday night, former president Barack Obama will speak at a rally at Morehouse College supporting Abrams. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

The state requires identification information on voter registration applications to precisely match information already on file with the Georgia Department of Driver Services or the Social Security Administration.
