This year’s gubernatorial race in Georgia is drawing high-profile boosters of both candidates, including President Trump and Vice President Pence for Kemp and former president Obama for Abrams.
The former president will also be campaigning on behalf of Abrams, who he has endorsed.
Regardless of what happens, Abrams said in a statement that she is “honored” to have Oprah join her on the campaign trail for “uplifting and honest conversations with voters about the clear choice before us in this election and the boundless potential of Georgians.”
“Oprah Winfrey has inspired so many of us through the years with her unparalleled ability to form real connections and strengthen the bonds of family and community,” Abrams said in a statement distributed by her campaign.
Abrams, who is locked in a tight race with Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, would be the first black woman governor in U.S. history if elected.
This is the first time Winfrey has campaigned in-person with a political candidate since appearing with then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008.
