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

Oprah also gave an impassioned speech in Marietta, calling on people to vote and saying, "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".

Stacey Abrams, 44, is a lawyer and novelist who served as minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017.

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

Abrams, who is going up against Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, laid out her platform in a race that has drawn national attention as she hopes to become the first black female governor in US history.

"I am an independent woman; I have earned the right to do exactly what I want to do when I want to do it".

"Go with God, go with objective, go with your values, upholding everything we believe to be true about Stacey Abrams and why we're all voting for her", Winfrey said. If elected, Abrams would be the first black woman governor in Georgia.

Yemen’s Houthis Say Attacked Saudi Air Base in Response to Airstrikes
The ongoing fighting between the two warring rivals, along with daily Saudi-led airstrikes, left scores of casualties. The war has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced 3 million others, according to United Nations aid agencies.

He is campaigning against Mr. Trump's agenda and Republican candidates less than two years after he left office, a departure from a historical norm in which former presidents tend to avoid openly criticizing their successors. Vice President Mike Pence had the flawless response by channeling Will Ferrell in "Anchorman". And so I promise that every single person who votes for Stacey Abrams, you're going to get a new vehicle!

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

Friday's ruling required Kemp to allow 3,000 of those people, whose voting registration was placed in "pending" status due to questions about their US citizenship, to vote in the November 6 USA midterm election if they present proof of citizenship at the polls.

And someone out front was wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate", alluding to Kemp withdrawing from a debate scheduled Sunday in favor of appearing in Macon with President Donald Trump.

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.

In a statement issued to the Washington Post, Kemp's spokeswoman, Candice L. Broce, called the ruling "a minor change to the current system".
