Abrams, who is attempting to become the first black female governor in USA history, then thanked Winfrey in a statement, reports ABC News. "However, the Court finds that this burden - disseminating information about who may check proof of citizenship and training poll managers how to do so, as set forth below - is minimal compared to the potential loss of a right to vote altogether by a group of people".

As Winfrey stumped for Abrams in the state, Veep Mike Pence was nearby to deliver some of his very best insults to the talk-show host billionaire on behalf of Abrams' political opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Abrams is locked in a tight race with Republican Brian Kemp as she tries to become the nation's first black female governor. "I'm not testing the waters". I'm not trying to test any waters - don't want to go in those waters.

He declared that he had "a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood".

Donald Trump, who plans to appear with Mr Kemp later this week told reporters at the White House: "I've always liked Oprah". "But this is the South, people have been really wonderful and really optimistic about Stacey Abrams".

A spokeswoman for Abrams lumped Kemp in with President Trump, suggesting the president created the climate for the racist calls to air.

Investigative journalism website WhoWhatWhy reported Sunday that they had received an email and document, sent from the Democratic Party of Georgia to election security experts, that highlights "massive" vulnerabilities within the state's online voter registration system.

Winfrey did not mention Pence or the frequent GOP broadsides about "Hollywood" outsiders.

On "Outnumbered", Washington Post editor and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Winfrey is an "entity unto herself", and her endorsement may carry some weight, but he believes Hollywood elites won't swing races for Democrats in next week's midterm elections. But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS". She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching. oppression. suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

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

Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Candice Broce, Kemp's press secretary, said in a statement.
