Oprah surprises Georgia residents while campaigning for Stacey Abrams

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

The two-paragraph press release from Kemp's office - titled "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" - reads: "After a failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system, the Secretary of State's office opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia on the evening of Saturday, November 3, 2018".

Oprah, 64, gave a rousing speech to Democrat supporters ahead of next Tuesday's vote in which she called Ms Abrams a "changemaker".

In a statement to TIME, the Abrams campaign called the investigation, "a political stunt". "I am not trying to test any water, don't want to go in those waters". Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.

Kemp is in a close race against Stacey Abrams, the former minority leader in the Georgia House of Representatives.

Georgia's gubernatorial race has been filled with racial issues such as voter suppression and ballot access. I've earned the right to think for myself.

Kemp's office, which supervises elections in Georgia, offered no evidence publicly for launching the investigation two days before voters go to the polls to decide which party will control Congress and to select three dozen state governors.

President can't change the Constitution with an Executive Order
Ryan says Republicans didn't like when then-President Barack Obama "tried changing immigration laws via executive action". Trump was asked if he believed that he could get rid of birthright citizenship without changing the Constitution.

"This is yet another example of abuse of power by an unethical Secretary of State", she wrote in a statement obtained by Law&Crime.

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend. "I absolutely am voting for her", Denise replied.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said.

Mimicking Winfrey's famous talk show giveaways, the message promises voters who select Abrams that, "Everybody gets a vehicle!" Abrams is running against Republican nominee Brian Kemp.

Abigail Collazo, Abrams' director of strategic communications, condemned the robocall and said both Trump and Kemp have contributed to a poisonous atmosphere, adding that Kemp has responded with silence on previous racial attacks on Abrams.

Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia past year, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
