  • Oprah Winfrey will campaign in Georgia for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams during the midterm elections.
  • Abrams is in the middle of a heated race against her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State.
  • If Abrams wins, she will become the first African-American female governor in the US.
  • Kemp warned his supporters earlier this month that he was worried about Abrams’ effort to increase voter turnout.

  • Former President Barack Obama is scheduled to speak in Atlanta on Friday to support Abrams.

ATLANTA (AP) — Oprah Winfrey is bringing her star power to one of the nation’s hottest governor’s races, even as President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama try to put their imprint on the Georgia election.

Winfrey is joining Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams for two town hall-style events Thursday, the same day Vice President Mike Pence travels to the state for several rallies with Republican Brian Kemp.
