Pence's Message To Oprah: 'I'm Kind Of A Big Deal Too'

Pence's Message To Oprah: 'I'm Kind Of A Big Deal Too'

The 78-year-old civil rights legend was spotted dancing to "Happy" by Pharrell Williams at a campaign event Thursday for Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor.

Abrams is a charismatic and well-qualified politician who represents the incoming wave of progressive candidates committed to making real change.

Oprah Winfrey is doing her part to help Stacey Abrams make history by becoming the first African-American woman to become United States governor.

She praised Abrams as a leader who "will serve the underserved of the state of Georgia".

"I am honoured to have Oprah join me for uplifting and honest conversations with voters about the clear choice before us in this election and the boundless potential of Georgians". If elected, Abrams would become the first black woman governor in USA history. President Trump is rallying for Kemp on Sunday. He wields guns in his ads and lambastes Abrams as a tool of "socialists" and "billionaires" who "want to turn Georgia into California".

The entertainment icon, who rarely makes political endorsements, drew cheers when she said she's a registered independent who was not in Georgia at anyone's request.

Winfrey has always been rumored to be a 2020 presidential candidate, but she quelled those rumors in her Thursday speech.

"Well, I think they would want them to vote, but not certainly not vote based on one's identity", Aubrey Shines said in a video message.

"I don't want to run, okay?"

Winfrey also said that she refused "to let their sacrifices be in vain". I'm not trying to test any waters.

Winfrey explained that in her canvassing, she already talked to people who have voted early and plan on volunteering for Abrams.

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".

Vice President Mike Pence is in Georgia today to stump for Kemp and President Donald Trump will be in the state this weekend.
