Oprah Winfrey - one of the most prominent celebrities in the United States - is a big supporter of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia. In 2008, incumbent GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss was forced into a runoff with Democratic challenger Jim Martin, who had been buoyed by an increased black turnout with Barack Obama at the top of the ticket.
"We have this incredible opportunity to make history", Winfrey told the capacity crowd "We have our inalienable right to vote because the one place where we are all equal, is at the polls".
"She goes, 'I only back candidates that I feel inspired by and that are authentic.' And notice who she didn't campaign for is Hillary Clinton", Watters said. "I paid for myself and I approve this message". "I am here because I want you to remind others of the power".
If Abrams wins next week, the former Georgia state House minority leader would become the country's first female African-American governor.
"I don't want to run, okay? I'm not trying to test any waters". "Don't want to go in those waters".
