Here’s How Georgia Is Disqualifying Voters for its Gubernatorial Election

Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female United States governor

Ms Abrams, a Yale-educated lawyer who served a decade in the Georgia Legislature, would be the first black female governor in American history.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly 7 million registered voters have cast ballots already.

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

Last-minute legal decisions, a racist robocall and a protester wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate".

"Georgia has always been on a path of change and evolution", Abrams said.

Kemp did not address the robocalls at his only scheduled campaign stop on Saturday, at a Cuban restaurant in a north-Atlanta suburb.

"I don't want to run, okay?"

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

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. As a TV crew from MSNBC tried to film the hecklers being removed, a Kemp supporter physically blocked their path.

On Sunday, President Trump is rallying for Kemp.

Kemp, on the other hand, is placing the blame on his opponent.

Civil rights groups sued Kemp for purging thousands of inactive voters from the rolls and enforcing the law, which placed more than 50,000 voter registrations in limbo because information on their applications appeared different from government records. He called the controversy "manufactured". The state barred these voters from voting, claiming they could not confirm their citizenship, leading to the voting rights group to sue the state.

She's sought the post as an unapologetic liberal trying to draw new voters to the polls and prove that Georgia's growth and diversity make it a legitimate two-party battleground.

"We regret that we had to cancel but once Secretary Kemp pulled out at the last minute, the candidates could not agree to a new time", Channel 2 News Director Misti Turnball said in a statement.
