Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.
And in a nod to the allegations of voter suppression that have marked the gubernatorial race, Winfrey told the crowd that "every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with, can not be suppressed and can not be denied". "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.
"So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said.
Winfrey, who took the stage to booming applause, said she wanted to come to Georgia to support Abrams because she saw how Abrams is "handling herself" amid an onslaught of "haters".
"And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", he said.
"I got a message for all of Stacy Abram's liberal Hollywood friends", he continued.
Winfrey sparked 2020 chatter earlier this year after her inspiring speech last January at the 2018 Golden Globes while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
Then 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.
Abrams, who is attempting to become the first black female governor in US history, then thanked Winfrey in a statement, reports ABC News. Kemp is trying to prevent Democrats from establishing Georgia as a legitimate presidential battleground state. Goosing a GOP base that holds Trump and Pence in high regard is key to the approach.
