Oprah Winfrey Campaigns with Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

Oprah Winfrey Campaigns with Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

The contentious gubernatorial race between Abrams, a former leader in the state House of Representatives, and her Republican opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, has been marred by accusations of voter suppression.

The vice president is throwing his support behind Republican nominee Brian Kemp in the tight race, and at a Thursday rally, he charged that Abrams is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals". There have been reports of problems with Georgia's voting machines and the NAACP filed complaints with the state's Board of Elections after people alleged their votes for Abrams switched to a vote for Kemp, USA Today reported.

And in a nod to the allegations of voter suppression that have marked the gubernatorial race, Winfrey told the crowd that "every single one of us has something that, if done in numbers too big to tamper with, can not be suppressed and can not be denied". He was in Florida earlier for Andrew Gillum, who would be his state's first black governor.

The ruling Friday only deals with a portion of the 53,000 people whose voter registrations are pending. It also signaled that the coalition of civil rights groups that brought the case against Kemp would likely succeed should the lawsuit continue. She ruled that Georgia must immediately start allowing poll managers to clear flagged voters who show proof of citizenship to vote a regular ballot, when only deputy registrars could previously.

Trump to end citizenship for children born in U.S. to non-citizens
Abel Reyes and his girlfriend Maira each have two children who were born in the USA to non-citizen parents. That would require action by Congress and U.S. states. "Yeah, I have", Mr Trump confirmed.

In her remarks at Thursday's town hall with Abrams, Winfrey told the crowd that she is a registered independent, "because I don't want any party and I don't want any kind of partisan influence telling me what decisions I get to make for myself".

"So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams". And considering that voters of color tend to disproportionately cast their ballots for Democrats, many have argued that Kemp's actions reflect deliberate racial discrimination.

But Ross' order said that process wasn't working because some citizens have been turned away from the polls.

In a statement, Kemp spokesperson Candace Broce said that the secretary of state approved of the ruling. In October, a coalition of civil rights groups sued him.
