'Vote your values': Oprah Winfrey campaigns for Stacey Abrams

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

But Winfrey had a message for those speculating that she may pursue a political bid of her own: She's not running. I don't want to run!

In recent weeks, a series of lawsuits and claims from Abrams and Democrats alleges that Kemp, the sitting secretary of state and thus Georgia's chief elections officer, is engaging in racially biased voter suppression. 'I'm not here to test any waters.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said.

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

Abrams would be the nation's first black female governor.

Kemp is a staunch conservative who has embraced U.S. President Donald Trump and the administration's hard-line on immigration. Winfrey has since dismissed the notion that she would challenge Trump in 2020.

"I've earned the right to do what I want to do when I want to do it". I just came to remind you of the power. "Rather it lives and thrives in making sure that everybody is lifted by the community", Winfrey said.

"You get a vote!" "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote".

Kemp - who, as Georgia secretary of state, is also in charge of elections and voter registration - faced backlash after it was reported his office had put more than 53,000 voter applications on hold, almost 70% of which are from African-Americans, because they failed to clear the state's controversial "exact match" standard.

Winfrey blasted attacks on Abrams that she says she saw in her hotel room - Republican ads casts Abrams as "too extreme" and "radical" for Georgia - as "noise" that is "designed to confound you with fear".
