Oprah Winfrey is officially endorsing Georgia Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams. On Thursday (November 1), Oprah joined Stacey for a rally in Georgia where she explained the importance of everyone voting in the midterm election.
Oprah says, “I don’t want to run. I’m here today to support a change-maker.” Stacey would truly be a “change-maker” because if she elected she would be the country’s first black female governor. Oprah refers to Stacey as a “Georgia Warrior.” For right-now Oprah has stepped away from her position as a CBS News contributor for “60 minutes” to dedicate more time towards campaigning with Stacey.
Oprah previously campaigned with former president Barack Obama and Oprah has also confirmed she will not be running for president in 2020.
Stacey Abrams is running against Republica candidate Brian Kemp. At a recent rally, Mike Pence reacted t Oprah’s relationship with Stacey saying, “This ain’t Hollywood. I’ve got a message for all of Abrams liberal Hollywood friends. This is Georgia, and Georgia wants a governor that is going to pt Georgia values and Georgia first.”
You know who we here for!… Stacey Abrams!
