Oprah Rocks The House For Stacey Abrams

"This ain't Hollywood, this is Georgia - and Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", Mr Pence said at a rally for Mr Kemp this week.

Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic party causes.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said. "I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

Ms Abrams, 44, is running against Georgia's Republican Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, who has had the backing of own big name: Vice President Mike Pence.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", Pence said, in an apparent reference to a line from Ferrell's hit 2004 film, "Anchorman".

In the past two years, his most memorable moment was that time he spent a quarter million in taxpayer money flying to a football game just so he could pointedly walk out in protest.

Perhaps even more than President Barack Obama, who will campaign for Abrams on Friday, Winfrey's appeal closely aligns with Abrams' political pitch.

"I'm an African-American woman who is charting a very different path to doing this", Abrams told CNN last month. I don't want to run. "But I also think they're excited by the possibility it could work".

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door. Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

"I said, when we were watching it, 'If that women can get folks to eat pizza with a cauliflower crust on it, she is going to get that woman elected the first black female governor.' She took people to church", the co-host added. "Are you voting for her?"

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds. "Do you have an early voting plan?"
