  • Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's raceMore

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand, I'm thinking about running myself", Winfrey said.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Abrams tomorrow. Kemp, who has bucked calls to resign or recuse himself, says he is following the law and has made it easier to vote in Georgia.

Last week an NBC News/Marist poll showed Kemp leading Abrams by 2 percentage points.

Director of strategic communication Abigail Collazo said it was "pathetic" that Kemp "has only now suddenly chose to find a conscience as polls are tightening and Georgia voters are making it clear that they reject the kind of hate he and his allies have been spewing around the state".

"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".

"She is a phenomenal candidate and person and she can make history by becoming the first ever Black Women elected Governor in America", he wrote in an Instagram post.

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

Arsene Wenger: Former Arsenal boss will not manage in England again
The Gunners have not tasted defeat for twelve matches , after losing their first two competitive games under new boss Unai Emery . The Frenchman said: "I have dedicated my whole life to one club - it would be hard and not well accepted".

Though he's not on the ground in Georgia, Avengers actor Mark Ruffalo also lent his support to Abrams on social media.

Aubrey Shines commented on how Oprah Winfrey said that the ancestors of black Georgians would be proud of them for voting for Stacey Abrams. She ruled that Georgia must immediately start allowing poll managers to clear flagged voters who show proof of citizenship to vote a regular ballot, when only deputy registrars could previously.

The cultural icon said she is a political independent who has "earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself".

On Sunday, President Trump will also be in Georgia campaigning for Kemp.

"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals ..."

Kemp's campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

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