Legal decisions and a racist robocall in Georgia governor's race

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", she said to a mostly female audience north of downtown Atlanta. "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

She was in the state on Thursday campaigning for Abrams, cheering "everybody gets a vote!"

While Abrams has claimed Kemp is deliberately trying to suppress the votes of black Georgians, who typically vote Democratic, Kemp argues the issues with registration forms are due to shoddy work by liberal groups such as the Abrams-founded New Georgia Project, which works to register minority voters.

A robocall apparently from a white supremacist group has injected racism directly into the Georgia governor's race, a tight contest already the subject of race-laden debate over ballot access and voter suppression. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, two days after President Trump visited the state to stump for their Republican opponents.

Aubrey Shines commented on how Oprah Winfrey said that the ancestors of black Georgians would be proud of them for voting for Stacey Abrams. I've earned the right to think for myself.

Perhaps even more than President Barack Obama, who will campaign for Abrams on Friday, Winfrey's appeal closely aligns with Abrams' political pitch. However, the 53,000 voters with pending applications can still vote on election day, if they present photo identification at the polls.

The Democratic candidate, Stacey Abrams, is campaigning to be the first black female governor in United States history. Oprah made the impressive step of going door to door in an Atlanta suburb to canvas for Stacy and the results were priceless.

Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams.

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams", the vile message continues.

"Oprah's good, but the woman that she's supporting is not qualified to be the governor of Georgia by any stretch of the imagination". "I absolutely am voting for her", Denise replied.

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