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

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

Oprah Stumps For Stacey Abrams In Georgia, Ignores Mike Pence’s “This Ain’t Hollywood” Nattering Nearby

Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and Oprah Winfrey - who supports Abrams and knocked on voters' doors for her this week - were targeted in a racist robocall evidently funded by a neo-Nazi group on Friday. The call, sent to an unknown number of Georgians, impersonates Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire media titan who came to Georgia on Thursday to support Abrams. Oprah then asked "Do you have an early voting plan?" and Denise assured her she did. "She's a great speaker, but I liked her better when she was giving away Toyotas and refrigerators", Ingraham said.

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

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear".

Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Kemp on Thursday, and criticized the star power Abrams' campaign has attracted. If elected Abrams would be the first black female governor in United States history.

Kemp is a staunch conservative who has embraced U.S. President Donald Trump and the administration's hard-line on immigration. "To try to tie the candidacy of the Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp to the scourge of racism and even lynchings?"

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections", Ms Winfrey said, "but rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community". Trump announced he would campaign in Macon, Georgia at 4 p.m. the same day. "I'm kind of a big deal too."The Ingraham Angle airs weekdays at 10 p.m. on Fox News Channel".

She encouraged women of all races - "sisters ... not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago.

Pence said he had a message for Abrams and her other celebrity friends - including Will Ferrell - who rallied for her in Georgia: "This ain't Hollywood!".

Kemp told the packed crowd of supporters that the race for governor was a simple choice: one between continued economic prosperity under Republican leadership, or a turn to "socialism" under Democrats.
