Georgia's Brian Kemp investigates Democrats over alleged cybercrime

Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support 'This Ain't Hollywood This Is Georgia'

Abrams faces off against Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R). Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, two days after President Trump visited the state to stump for their Republican opponents. If elected, Abrams would become the first black woman governor in USA history.

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event. "This is the South. People have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

As Winfrey was speaking, Vice President Mike Pence was in Dalton, about 70 miles north of Marietta, to add his support to Kemp.

After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams.

"You are on the precipice of an historical election", she said, assuring them, "Nobody paid for me to come here; nobody even asked me to come here".

Numerous applications were flagged for failing to pass the state's "exact match" verification process, which requires that identification information on voter registration applications precisely match information already on file.

The announcement, which contained no details on the alleged "cyber crimes" that it suggests state Democrats were involved in, was immediately condemned as a political ploy by Democrats and some commentators, who believe Kemp should not oversee an election in which he is competing. But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS".

In an apparent reference to the controversy, Winfrey said, "Every single one of us - every single one of us - has the same power at the polls, and every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with" - she paused for resounding, prolonged applause by the audience - "cannot be suppressed and can not be denied".

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

"Another day, another major defeat for Brian Kemp's voter suppression efforts", Rebecca DeHart, executive director for the Democratic Party of Georgia, told The Hill. Goosing a GOP base that holds Trump and Pence in high regard is key to the approach.

On Saturday, it was reported that racist robocalls bankrolled by white supremacists were targeting Abrams and Winfrey.
