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

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

The president commented on the Georgia race for governor after reporters asked him to respond to Winfrey's campaign rallies in Georgia.

"Democracy is not just about our individual rights and concerns and our individual protections", Winfrey said, "but rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community". "And I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".


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

The Georgia Department of Economic Development said there were 320 films and TV shows shot in the state past year, generating an economic impact of $9.5 billion, including $2.7 billion in direct spending.

"You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state", she added.


Pence was speaking at a campaign event for Republican Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. In 2008, incumbent GOP Senator Saxby Chambliss was forced into a runoff with Democratic challenger Jim Martin, who had been buoyed by an increased black turnout with Barack Obama at the top of the ticket. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

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

Kemp is trying to extend the Republican domination in Georgia, which hasn't elected a Democrat as governor since 1998. With Metz consistently pulling down just a couple of points of support, no poll of the race so far has either Kemp nor Abrams breaking 50 percent.
