Oprah Campaigns in Georgia for Stacey Abrams

Oprah Winfrey urged voters Thursday in Atlanta to go to the polls on Nov. 6 in support of Stacey Abrams’ Democratic bid for Georgia governor.

Winfrey, who spoke at two campaign events, said Abrams would serve the state’s underserved.

“I’m here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed, for the right for the equality at the polls,” Winfrey said. “And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain. I refuse.”

As the crowd erupted in cheers and applause, Winfrey added, “don’t let nobody turn you around.”

The billionaire entertainment mogul, who said she’d been watching how Abrams handled herself when faced with opposition, called Abrams just a few days ago to offer her support.

If elected, Abrams would make history as the nation’s first Black female governor.
