Knock Knock — It’s Oprah! Winfrey Campaigns for Stacey Abrams as Mogul Says She Won't Run in 2020

Those allegations, which are largely unfair, have brought another former president into the discussion: former Georgia governor Jimmy Carter, who amplified calls for Kemp to resign his current position. She's so passionate about her candidacy that she's made a decision to go door to door to canvassing for Abrams.

Some Georgia residents got the surprise of their lives on Thursday when they opened their doors to find Oprah Winfrey on the other side. He hit the trail Thursday with Vice President Mike Pence.

Given the national interest in Georgia governor's race and the tight polls, voters there might expect to see even more "big guns" making their way to the state after Election Day. "If there was a runoff, we would be favored to win".

On "The Five", Jesse Watters said Winfrey is an unbelievable and charismatic speaker, and he believes her endorsement will push Abrams across the finish line.

"I don't want to run, OK?"

To applause and laughter, the media titan continued that she was "not trying to test any waters".

"I'm here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter".

"I am 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... and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain."

John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights movement and the dance floor, provided some needed respite by getting down to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams before a rally for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Oprah Winfrey has been campaigning for Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams in her campaign for state governor.

Noting that he heard Winfrey was in the Peach State, Pence said, "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: this ain't Hollywood".

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

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'm an African-American woman who is charting a very different path to doing this", Abrams told CNN last month.

She shared, "Georgia you've been on my mind and here's why".
