Oprah doorknocks in support of possible first black female USA governor

'Vote your values': Oprah Winfrey campaigns for Stacey Abrams - video Knock Knock — It’s Oprah! Winfrey Campaigns for Stacey Abrams as Mogul Says She Won't Run in 2020

At a separate appearance with Kemp Thursday morning, Pence mocked Abrams for receiving support from Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell on the campaign trail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Oprah Winfrey - one of the most prominent celebrities in the United States - is a big supporter of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia.

The Republican Party has held Georgia's governor position since 2003.

To applause and laughter, the media titan continued that she was "not trying to test any waters".

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Pence said, after drawing boos when he mentioned that "Oprah is in town" and noted that actor Will Ferrell was recently in the state for Democrats.

Given the national interest in Georgia governor's race and the tight polls, voters there might expect to see even more "big guns" making their way to the state after Election Day.

"It has been a really interesting experience because when you knock on a door, you don't know what people are going to do or say or how they're going to react", Ms Winfrey said in one of the videos.


"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already. "Are you voting for her?"

She dispelled rumors that she may be considering a presidential run herself and said she had simply chosen to come to the state to support Abrams.

"I absolutely am voting for her", Denise replied.

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".

"I do", the woman responds.
