Oprah campaigns for Democrat Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor

Watch: Battling for Attention Over Oprah Mike Pence Forced to Tell GOP Voters ‘I’m Kind of a Big Deal Too’

Vice President Mike Pence was forced to remind Republican voters in Georgia on Thursday that he's important.

If Abrams wins next week, the former Georgia state House minority leader would become the country's first female African-American governor.

"The woman she is supporting is not qualified to be the governor of Georgia - by any stretch of the imagination", Trump argued.

Trump's scheduled appearance sidelined the second and final scheduled between Kemp and Abrams. State law requires the victor to receive a majority of the vote, and if neither does, the top two vote getters proceed to a runoff.

"Down here in Georgia y'all going door to door".

A Kemp campaign source, who insists the Republican will win on November 6, nonetheless says Kemp has the advantage in a runoff situation.

"We're gonna win. We're gonna win", she sang at the end.

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".

Some Georgia residents got the surprise of their lives on Thursday when they opened their doors to find Oprah Winfrey on the other side. He ran ads calling himself a "politically incorrect conservative" and said things to demonstrate just that. Kemp is trying to prevent Democrats from establishing Georgia as a legitimate presidential battleground state.

Georgia is no stranger to high-profile runoff elections. But Kemp's campaign said President Trump's schedule takes precedence.

She added that she is in Georgia because of all the men and women throughout history who were "suppressed, repressed and oppressed for the right and the equality at the polls".

Kemp - who, as Georgia secretary of state, is also in charge of elections and voter registration - faced backlash after it was reported his office had put more than 53,000 voter applications on hold, almost 70% of which are from African-Americans, because they failed to clear the state's controversial "exact match" standard.
