Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby
07 November, 2018, 09:47
Oprah is in Georgia, supporting Stacey Abrams' bid to become the first female African-American governor in us history.
For her part, Winfrey sought to cut through the party-line framing.
Female voters said they prefer Abrams 53.4 percent to 38.9 percent, while male voters said they prefer Kemp 54.5 percent to 40.5 percent.
"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", said Abrams spokeswoman Abigail Collazo. "I'm not testing the waters", she said.
Taking into account the historical voting patterns and the representation of African Americans in US politics, Abrams' campaign has drawn much public attention. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote".
The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck, with Ms Abrams up against Republican nominee Brian Kemp.
Trump criticized former President Barack Obama, saying he was told about potential Russian meddling before the 2016 election but didn't take public actions because he thought Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the presidential election.
Winfrey did not mention Pence or the frequent GOP broadsides about "Hollywood" outsiders. In a video Winfrey posted on her Instagram page, one woman jumped when she opened the door.
Oprah also hosted two town halls with Abrams during her trip. She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching ... oppression ... suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton. He then blasted Abrams' policy pitches on health care and education. And President Trump plans to speak at a Sunday rally in Macon for Republican Brian Kemp. He's banking on running up wide margins outside metro Atlanta and holding most of the GOP votes closer to the city. All of those demographics overlap with Winfrey's fan base, and she will hit them all with events in Republican-leaning Cobb County and heavily Democratic DeKalb County, both within miles of downtown Atlanta.
Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
