OPRAH WINFREY AND STACEY ABRAMS
Oprah Winfrey campaigns with Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams
What a magnificent sight!!
I’ve been closely following Stacey’s gubernatorial run in Georgia and know all about the devious, cheating ways of Brian Kemp.
There’s a huge disenfranchisement of African-American voters at the hands of the Secretary of state who, at the same time, is running for governor.
Tad hypocritical, tad conflict of interests, you think?
Anyway, Oprah’s on the way!!
Here’s so hoping that this takes Stacey over the top!!
Oprah Winfrey has lent her star power to Stacey Abrams, the Georgia Democrat aiming to become America’s first black female governor in the midterm elections next week.
“I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter,” Winfrey told a cheering crowd at a Cobb County town hall, citing Abrams’ stance on environmental protection, healthcare and gun control.
Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic Party causes and some fans earlier this year tried to encourage her to run against Drumpf in 2020.
She has said she does not want to run.
“I’m here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed … I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain,” she told the audience, to cheers.
Abrams’ Republican rival, Brian Kemp, serves as Georgia secretary of state, a role in which he oversees state elections. Earlier this month, a coalition of state civil rights groups sued Kemp, accusing him of trying to depress minority voter turnout to improve his chances of winning.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
She came to Georgia because she chose to, not because anyone paid her
She doesn’t plan on running for president
Voting is extremely important to her
‘For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote, wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family, you are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don’t vote,” Winfrey said, adding that the right to vote is like “the crown that we all get to wear.”
