She also said the election is about issues like expanding Medicaid insurance and focusing state spending on public education, job training and small business start-ups. In addition to the above video Oprah posted on her Instagram account, Abrams posted two more videos and pictures on her Instagram story.

"Donald Trump is a different case", she said. And you know what?

Winfrey again dismissed rumours that she intended on running for president in 2020, "I don't want to run, okay? That state will be in big, big trouble very quickly, and the people of Georgia don't want that". I'm not trying to test any waters - don't want to go in those waters.

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed, for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey said.

"I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

As she battles Republican Brian Kemp and fights against Kemp's alleged efforts to to suppress voting, she has gotten tremendous support from America's queen herself: Oprah Winfrey.

If elected Abrams would be the state's first black governor.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.

The increase can be attributed by exciting Democratic candidates like Andrew Gillum of Florida. "And to do, read and think what I told them to".

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

Trump first began speaking about Abrams, although not by name, in Washington on Thursday when a reporter asked him about the day's dueling campaign events in Georgia: a series of rallies featuring Vice President Mike Pence, and a pair of town hall meetings led by Abrams and Oprah Winfrey. "I think she brings a different type of credibility".

It goes on to say, "Years ago, the Jews who own the American Media saw something in me - the ability to trick dumb white women into thinking I was like them".

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".

With early and absentee voting underway ahead of the November 6 election, Democrats and voting rights groups in Georgia are staging massive voter protection operations, including poll monitors and voter assistance hotlines, to ensure people can access the ballot.
