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

On Thursday night, Laura Ingraham went after Oprah Winfrey for campaigning on behalf of Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D). In a video posted on her Instagram, Winfrey knocked on the red door of a brick house, and a woman named Denise came to the door. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy".

Kemp is trying to extend the Republican domination in Georgia, which hasn't elected a Democrat as governor since 1998.

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.

Pence "said Thursday a vote for Brian Kemp is tantamount to support for President Donald Trump".

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". "If there was a runoff, we would be favored to win". "I think that's what you are hearing from Oprah".

He got himself in the right place at the right time; he's gaining experience and it was great to see him get up and get the goal. He told them he would look for replacements in January if they were unable to produce the quality required to win trophies.

On "The Five", Jesse Watters said Winfrey is an fantastic and charismatic speaker, and he believes her endorsement will push Abrams across the finish line.

"She goes, 'I only back candidates that I feel inspired by and that are authentic.' And notice who she didn't campaign for is Hillary Clinton", Watters said.

"So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said. Winfrey gave a rallying cry about the importance of voting and the dark history of suppressed voting rights people fought to end. "I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", the Vice President told supporters of Brian Kemp, Abrams' Republican opponent who stands accused of massive voter suppression in his current role of Secretary of State.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted.
