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

Civil rights groups raised concerns about the "Exact Match" law, accusing Republican gubernatorial candidate and Secretary of State Brian Kemp of engaging in voter suppression of minorities amid a tight race against Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", Pence said, in an apparent reference to a line from Ferrell's hit 2004 film, "Anchorman".

"After repeated efforts to schedule a debate on the issues that matter most to Georgia voters, radical Stacey Abrams decided she would rather hide behind television ads paid for by San Francisco socialists than face the voters and defend her extreme agenda that will raise taxes by $13,000 a person, give welfare and voting rights to illegal immigrants, and usher in the government takeover of healthcare".

Some have even started calling Atlanta "The Hollywood of the South" and "Y'allywood". President Trump is rallying for Kemp on Sunday.

- Former University of Georgia running back, Heisman Trophy victor, and College Football Hall of Herschel Walker has announced his support for Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate in Georgia's tight race to be the next governor.

"With the support of the Dawg Nation and leaders like Herschel and Coach Dooley, we can win at the ballot box and put hardworking Georgians first", Kemp said. Abrams is running against Republican nominee Brian Kemp. I've earned the right to think for myself. "I'm not testing the waters", she said. "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Abrams tomorrow.

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already.

"Remember, if blacks are going to have an authentic representation, wouldn't they then being to denounce the very party that she's asking them to vote for?"

Abrams is looking to maximize turnout among nonwhites, liberal urban whites and just enough whites everywhere else, including a smattering of moderates and suburban Republicans who are disenchanted with Trump - a considerable overlap with the fan base that propelled Winfrey to her billionaire icon status.

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.

After Winfrey's speech, Abrams climbed the stage to join a discussion and was greeted by chants from the audience.
