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

The catchphrase was a reference to an episode of Oprah's talk show, in which the media mogul gifted audience members with a vehicle, announcing, "You get a auto!"

"This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor", the state Democratic Party's executive director, Rebecca DeHart, said. "I don't want to run".

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence speaks to support Brian Kemp at a rally in Georgia.

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. I don't wanna go in those waters, ' she said, shaking her head and waving her finger.

United States talk show superstar Oprah Winfrey has been knocking on doors to get voters behind Stacey Abrams, much to the delight of those answering them. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers. Vice President Mike Pence had the flawless response by channeling Will Ferrell in "Anchorman".

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck, with Ms Abrams up against Republican nominee Brian Kemp.

A federal judge on Friday issued a blow to the GOP when she ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people affected by the states "exact match" to vote in this year's midterm elections on November 4. "This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

The Abrams camp likewise blasted the move but took a shot at Kemp and his highest profile supporter, President Donald Trump, who is coming to Georgia to campaign Sunday.

"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".

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams. Unlike Lively, who opted for the look sans shirt, the media mogul went the more conservative route paring her suit with a Tory Burch "vote" shirt ($68).

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door".

She called on the disenfranchised to use their power to vote.

"I do", the woman responds.
