New Racist Robocall Targets Stacey Abrams And Oprah Winfrey

New Racist Robocall Targets Stacey Abrams And Oprah Winfrey

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals".

Democrat Stacey Abrams is now running for governor of Georgia, and if elected, she would be the first African-American woman governor ever.

Ms Winfrey blasted attacks on Ms Abrams that she says she saw in her hotel room - Republican ads casts Ms Abrams as "too extreme" and "radical" for Georgia - as "noise" that is "designed to confound you with fear".

Oprah Winfrey, the coastal elite billionaire and queen of all media, went down to Georgia to stump for Democrats. "I'm here today to support a change-maker".

Oprah added, "I am an independent woman".

Abrams has been calling on Kemp to step down from his position as Georgia's secretary of state while running for governor because she sees the position's role in supervising elections as a conflict of interest. Asked why not, he said, "Take a look at her past, take a look at her history, take a look at what she wants to do and what she has in mind for the state".




"So we're basically saying Stacey Abrams has got it in the bag and she has no problems", McCain said. "I hope you are going to listen to my endorsement".

Stacey Abrams, 44, is a lawyer and novelist who served as minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017. "I want to make it very clear ..."

"Well, I think they would want them to vote, but not certainly not vote based on one's identity", Aubrey Shines said in a video message. "I'm not trying to test any waters", she said.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.

"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. In 2008, she campaigned for former US President Barack Obama as well Hillary Clinton in 2016. But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS". Civil rights groups have sued Kemp's office for purging thousands of inactive voters from the rolls and enforcing the state's "Exact Match" law, which has placed more than 53,000 voter registrations in limbo because information on the applications differed from government records.
