"Hi Denise", says Oprah, clad in a sage-colored velvet blazer.

CBS News reporter Nancy Cordes' video of the lawmaker busting a move before the Oprah Winfrey-headlined rally caught the attention of Williams. "When you sit at home, and your friends sit at home and don't go out to vote, you disrespect your elders".

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

In the case on absentee ballots, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit rejected Kemp's request to stay a lower court's ruling blocking election officials from throwing out absentee ballots for a supposed signature mismatch, without giving voters an opportunity to contest that and confirm their identity.

It is unknown how many Georgians received the robocall. Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.

Ingraham called out Winfrey because she felt the speech is trying to tie the candidacy of Abrams' opponent, Brian Kemp, to the scourge of racism in our country.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", said Pence, who is not from Georgia.

"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.

"I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message", Winfrey said, explaining that she tracked down Abrams' cell phone number and called her to say she wanted to offer assistance in the final days of the campaign.

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

"All of us may have been created equal, but if you're woke. you've got sense enough to know that everybody is not treated equally", she said.

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