New Racist Robocall Targets Stacey Abrams And Oprah Winfrey

06 November 2018

Georgia's gubernatorial race has already been a heated midterm race, as election officials in the state, along with Abrams' GOP opponent Secretary of State Brian Kemp, are facing lawsuits for voter suppression of predominately black and Asian Americans voters.

On Wednesday, the 64-year-old wore a velvet green suit as she hit the campaign trail in Georgia to support Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams, who has a shot at becoming the first black female governor in the country.

Mr Pence has criticised Ms Abrams for using Ms Winfrey during her campaign.

The voice on the robocall pretends to be Oprah Winfrey, who stumped for Abrams in Georgia earlier this week.

"Oprah was here endorse Stacey and I am here to endorse Brian", Trump said during the campaign run for Kemp. She jumps up and down; she clasps a woman's hand in her own; she cups another's face in her hand: She is willing to perform her Oprah-ness in exchange for these people's word that they will vote. Nobody even asked me to come here.

Mimicking Winfrey's famous talk show giveaways, the message promises voters who select Abrams that, "Everybody gets a auto!"

This is only the third time a man of colour has won the award, following Johnson in 2016 and Denzel Washington 10 years before. Now, after months of anticipation the magazine finally has revealed this year's victor is British actor Idris Elba .

Pence said Abrams' campaign is being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals", but that despite the major support from the entertainment industry, voters will choose a governor who genuinely wants to put the needs of the state and the values of its citizens first.

Stacey Abrams is the latest target of a racist robocall funded by The Road To Power.

He told the rally crowd in Macon, Ga., that Winfrey has "has been down to Mar-A-Lago", and that "until I ran for office we did very well".

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand for myself". "I'm kind of a big deal too and I've got a message, I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends".

What was notable was the extent to which he didn't bash Winfrey, who has a high favorability rating, but linked himself to her career. "I'm not testing the waters".

Georgia's general election is coming up on Tuesday, November 6, and there is national attention on Georgia's choices for governor. After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams. The state has not elected a Democrat governor since 1998. Civil rights groups have sued Kemp's office for purging thousands of inactive voters from the rolls and enforcing the state's "Exact Match" law, which has placed more than 53,000 voter registrations in limbo because information on the applications differed from government records.
