Kemp, Abrams denounce racist robocall

Kemp, Abrams denounce racist robocall

Abrams herself called the investigation "desperate" and characterized it as politically motivated in an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday morning.

Ms Winfrey, who has dismissed rumours she is planning to run for President in 2020, also endorsed Democrat Barack Obama before the 2008 election.

Stacey Abrams, Georgia's Democratic nominee for governor, lashed out against Republican challenger Brian Kemp on Sunday over his office's 11th-hour claim that Democrats had attempted to hack into the state's voter registration system.

On Wednesday, the 64-year-old wore a velvet green suit as she hit the campaign trail in Georgia to support Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams, who has a shot at becoming the first black female governor in the country.

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.

Abrams, a former minority leader in the state house, who would be the first non-white, non-male governor of Georgia and the first female African American governor in USA history. I don't want to run.

"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote", she added. "Because we are going to outwork him we are going to outvote him and we are going to win".


"Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", Pence said, after drawing boos when he mentioned that "Oprah is in town" and noted that actor Will Ferrell was recently in the state for Democrats. "I absolutely am voting for her", Denise replied.

Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear".

"In four days, we get to stand up on November 6, and we get to say this is who we are because we are Georgia", Abrams said during the rally.

The Road to Power, a white supremacist and anti-Semitic video podcast hosted by Scott Rhodes of Idaho, is the group behind the robocall.

The headline "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" sat front-and-centre on the secretary of state's government website - directly beneath a voter's guide to polling locations.
