Laura Ingraham accuses Oprah of 'race-baiting' during speech for Stacey Abrams

"Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that".

After surprising Georgians by campaigning for Abrams door-to-door, Oprah spoke at a Thursday campaign rally for her in Marietta.

"Let's go to the polls like you've never voted before!" said Rep. Lewis.

With early and absentee voting underway ahead of the November 6 election, Democrats and voting rights groups in Georgia are staging massive voter protection operations, including poll monitors and voter assistance hotlines, to ensure people can access the ballot.

The contentious gubernatorial race between Abrams, a former leader in the state House of Representatives, and her Republican opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has been marred by accusations of voter suppression.

Abrams is locked in a tight race with Republican Brian Kemp as she tries to become the nation's first black female governor. Trump will travel Sunday to Georgia, appearing with Kemp as part of the president's final multistate tour ahead of the midterms.

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", said Abrams spokeswoman Abigail Collazo.

Abrams would be the first black female governor in USA history. "And we've got a message for all of Stacey's Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

"Allowing poll managers to verify proof of citizenship would alleviate the severe burden on individuals who have been flagged and placed in pending status for citizenship while still serving the state's interest of ensuring that only United States' citizens are voting", District Judge Eleanor Ross said in her ruling.

"Georgia has always been on a path of change and evolution", Abrams said.

"All of us may have been created equal, but if you're woke. you've got sense enough to know that everybody is not treated equally", she said.

Kemp's campaign called the incidents "fake" and blamed Abrams.
