Oprah hits campaign trail in push for America's first black female governor

Oprah hits campaign trail in push for America's first black female governor

"He's wrong", Abrams said on CNN's "State of the Union".

USA talk show superstar Oprah Winfrey has been knocking on doors to get voters behind Stacey Abrams, much to the delight of those answering them.

Libertarian candidate Ted Metz has 1 percent support, while 2 percent are undecided.

Mr Pence has criticised Ms Abrams for using Ms Winfrey during her campaign.

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

"This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first. This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote, and you are choosing not to vote - wherever you are in this state, in this country - you are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said in Marietta, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb.

Pakistan to remain neutral in US-Russia row
He warned that the US will begin developing such weapons unless Russian Federation and China agree not to possess or develop them. Signed in 1987, the INF resolved a crisis over Soviet nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles targeting Western capitals.

Dead Sea flash floods kill 13 young children
At least 18 people, a lot of them children, have been killed after raging floodwaters swept away a school bus near the Dead Sea. The region was bracing on Thursday for the first winter storms after the summer, with heavy rainfall and high winds expected.

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper Traded To Dallas Cowboys
Dallas receivers have just one 100-yard game combined through seven games, by Cole Beasley in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville. He is expected to be able to play when the Cowboys return from their bye week to face the Tennessee Titans on November 5.

The voice on the robocall pretends to be Oprah Winfrey, who stumped for Abrams in Georgia earlier this week. "I paid for myself and I approve this message".

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals". She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching ... oppression ... suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

Donald Trump, who plans to appear with Mr Kemp later this week told reporters at the White House: "I've always liked Oprah".

On Friday, a federal judge upheld an injunction against Kemp's implementation of the state's "Exact Match" voting law, which required voters whose registrations differed even slightly from their identifications to provide additional verification and led officials to throw out many absentee ballots that didn't match up.

She encouraged women of all races - "sisters ... not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago.

Oprah surprised some Georgia residents after she went door knocking, saying it was her very first time canvassing for any political candidate and that she's optimistic about Abrams.

Kemp's office also named the Georgia Democratic Party, but offered no details on why it's included in the probe, which was reportedly opened Saturday evening. He's banking on running up wide margins outside metro Atlanta and holding most of the GOP votes closer to the city.
