Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's race

Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support 'This Ain't Hollywood This Is Georgia'

"I want everybody to pay attention to this: They have literally been doing the opposite of what they are saying", Obama said, noting scores of GOP votes to repeal the law.

Winfrey also is to appear alongside Abrams at a second town hall later on Thursday in DeKalb County. "You are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said.

Rapper and actor Common attended a "Souls to the Polls" rally with Abrams on Sunday in Atlanta.

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.

"According to the Motion Picture Association of America the motion picture and television industry is responsible for more than 92,100 jobs and almost $4.6 billion in total wages in Georgia, including indirect jobs and wages".

The Democratic candidate, Stacey Abrams, is campaigning to be the first black female governor in USA history.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross is a "minor change" to the current system, said Candice Broce, a spokeswoman for Kemp, in a statement.

Winfrey did not mention US President Donald Trump's name or reference Abrams' Republican opponent, Brian Kemp.

"I'm encouraged to see so many young voters showing up at the polls, and I'm also encouraged to see that we have a growing pool of independent voters who I think will break for democrats during this election", she said.

Kemp, 55, has served as Georgia's secretary of state since 2010.

"Brian Kemp's getting the support of all kinds of hardworking, good people all across Georgia and Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", he argued. "She had all the celebrities in 2016", Hurt said.

"It's like a domino effect", said Sara Henderson, executive director of Common Cause Georgia, about the voting issues in Georgia.
