Oprah has ruled out running for US President

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

That was a far cry from his reaction when President Donald Trump " s people played the song at a rally hours after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. I'm not trying to test any waters.

He is campaigning against Mr. Trump's agenda and Republican candidates less than two years after he left office, a departure from a historical norm in which former presidents tend to avoid openly criticizing their successors.

Oprah Winfrey has been campaigning for Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams, who is vying to become the United States' first ever black female governor, ahead of next week's midterm elections. I was just sitting at home in California minding my own business but I could not stop thinking about what's going on down here.

Touting the Democratic nominee's pitch for Medicaid expansion, "common-sense gun control", environmental regulations and "keeping families together, Winfrey said Abrams offers "the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp must take steps to make sure the state's controversial "exact match" voter registration system does not disenfranchise newly naturalized citizens who were being tagged in the system as non-citizens due to outdated state records, a federal judge ruled Friday. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too". Abrams will make history if she's elected governor of the state as the first black woman to hold the post.

On Sunday, President Trump is rallying for Kemp.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly 7 million registered voters have cast ballots already.

Then she encouraged women of all races - "sisters. not just 'sistahs,"' she joked - to remember that they would have been "just a piece of property" with no ballot barely a century ago.

She praised Abrams as a leader who "will serve the underserved of the state of Georgia". Actor Michael B. Jordan has knocked on doors in Atlanta urging black voters to turn out, and Actor and comedian Will Ferrell has also canvassed for Abrams' campaign.

Winfrey and Abrams greet a crowd gathered for a town hall conversation in Marietta, Ga.

A USA judge on Friday ordered Georgia to allow some 3,000 recently naturalized US citizens to vote in elections next week after their voting registrations were put on hold, according to a ruling filed in federal court in Atlanta.
