'Vote your values': Oprah Winfrey campaigns for Stacey Abrams

Posted November 02, 2018

She praised Abrams as a leader who "will serve the underserved of the state of Georgia". In a video posted on her Instagram, Winfrey knocked on the red door of a brick house, and a woman named Denise came to the door.

"I want to tell you ... no one paid for me to come here".

He said that Winfrey's comments about voter suppression, in particular, will resonate in a state where that has been a concern in the past.

He did not have a negative comment for Winfrey.

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", Winfrey said.

Ms Abrams, 44, is running against Georgia's Republican Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, who has had the backing of own big name: Vice President Mike Pence.

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

"She goes, 'I only back candidates that I feel inspired by and that are authentic.' And notice who she didn't campaign for is Hillary Clinton", Watters said.

"I'd like to remind Stacey, and Oprah, and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", simpered Pence, former TV talk show host and current Donald Trump yes-man.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already.

"I don't want to go in those waters!" "Are you voting for her?" "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds.

"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.

"You are voting for her".

"I do", the woman responds.
