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. "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

The Republican Party has held Georgia's governor position since 2003. "I'm not testing the waters", Winfrey said.

"I'm here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter".

Trump said that Abrams' history and her ideas made her unqualified for the governorship.

"I heard Oprah's in town today", Pence said.

Some 120 kilometres north, Vice-President Mike Pence stood alongside Abrams' opponent, Brian Kemp, in Dalton, and mocked the billionaire media icon as just another liberal outsider trying to impose on Republican-run Georgia. "I'm kind of a big deal too and I've got a message, I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends". Her path to victory, as the campaign sees it, comes through activating voters who might have sat out past elections or never before cast a ballot while - at the same time, with the same message - appealing to political moderates, especially those tied into Atlanta's booming economy. "Are you voting for her?"

On "The Five", Jesse Watters said Winfrey is an awesome and charismatic speaker, and he believes her endorsement will push Abrams across the finish line.

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

The Georgia Department of Economic Development said there were 320 films and TV shows shot in the state a year ago, generating an economic impact of $9.5 billion, including $2.7 billion in direct spending.

"I do", the woman responds.
