Whoops! Mike Pence's Hollywood Slam Backfires In 'The Hollywood Of The South'

Oprah Winfrey delivered a passionate stump speech Thursday for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is looking to become the nation's first black female governor.

Pence "said Thursday a vote for Brian Kemp is tantamount to support for President Donald Trump".

"And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", he said.

But Georgians may not have a final result after the polls close Tuesday, thanks largely to the presence of Libertarian party candidate Ted Metz.

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence speaks to support Brian Kemp at a rally in Georgia. State law requires the victor to receive a majority of the vote, and if neither does, the top two vote getters proceed to a runoff.

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door".

"We're gonna win. We're gonna win", she sang at the end. "We have more voters who participate in run-offs than she does", the source says. The media mogul touched on voter suppression in the state and encouraged voters to cast their ballots. Meanwhile, Kemp emerged from the Republican primary (in which he defeated establishment favorite Casey Cagle in a runoff) as an unabashed Trumpian populist. "I'm not trying to test any waters", Winfrey told the crowd in Marietta, Georgia, prompting applause and some cheers of encouragement.

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.

Georgia is no stranger to high-profile runoff elections.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Abrams tomorrow.

And in a nod to the allegations of voter suppression that have marked the gubernatorial race, Winfrey told the crowd that "every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with, can not be suppressed and can not be denied".
