Oprah Stumps For Democrats In Georgia. Mike Pence Responds Brilliantly

The suit was brought by the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda, protesting Kemp use of the state's "exact match" law, in his capacity as secretary of state.

A spokeswoman for Abrams lumped Kemp in with President Trump, suggesting the president created the climate for the racist calls to air.

Abigail Collazo, Abrams' director of strategic communication, released a statement about the robocall on Saturday morning. Civil rights groups celebrated the ruling as a major victory.

Abrams faces off against Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R).

The ruling also required Kemp to direct all county election officials on how to verify proof of citizenship; to order county election boards to post a list of acceptable documentation for proving citizenship; and to update a section on his website containing information for pending voters.

"I've heard nothing about it", Abrams told CNN's "State Of The Union" when asked about the investigation.

Kemp is in a tight race against Abrams who would become the first black female governor in the nation's history. Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Kemp on Thursday, and criticized the star power Abrams' campaign has attracted.

Also rallying behind Ms Abrams is former president Barack Obama and Hollywood names such as Will Ferrel and Mark Ruffalo, who have all campaigned in the midterm elections runup.

A federal judge on Friday issued a blow to the GOP when she ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people affected by the states "exact match" to vote in this year's midterm elections on November 4.

As a black woman, Winfrey noted her kinship to two groups historically denied ballot access in the United States. 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".

Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail.

Abrams is looking to maximize turnout among nonwhites, liberal urban whites and just enough whites everywhere else, including a smattering of moderates and suburban Republicans who are disenchanted with Trump - a considerable overlap with the fan base that propelled Winfrey to her billionaire icon status.

Kemp told the packed crowd of supporters that the race for governor was a simple choice: one between continued economic prosperity under Republican leadership, or a turn to "socialism" under Democrats.
