Georgia's Brian Kemp investigates Democrats over alleged cybercrime

Oprah Winfrey surprised voters in Atlanta as she knocked on their doors

She added that Abrams is "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

Abrams on Sunday said that the difficulties faced by many first time voters has only galvanized more people to head to the polls.

A racist and anti-Semitic robocall impersonating Oprah Winfrey, apparently from a white supremacist group, is injecting racism directly into Georgia's race for governor, according to an NBC News report.

"I stand against any person or organization that peddles this type of unbridled hate and unapologetic bigotry", Kemp said in a statement.

Abrams herself called the investigation "desperate" and characterized it as politically motivated in an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday morning.

She touts her experience working with Republicans as a state legislative leader, but she doesn't back down on her promises to expand Medicaid insurance, prioritize public education and push for tighter gun restrictions.

The vice president then joked, "I'm kind of a big deal, too".

Khashoggi Was strangled upon entering consulate, Turkey says
The 59-year-old was a columnist for The Washington Post and vanished after entering the consulate in Istanbul . Saudi Arabia only recently acknowledged Turkish evidence showed the slaying was premeditated.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.

"He is desperate to turn the conversation away from his failures, from his refusal to honor his commitments and from the fact that he's part of a nationwide system of voter suppression that will not work in this election because we're going to outwork him, we're going to outvote him and we're going to win", she said. Two men protesting Kemp's immigration policy while Kemp was onstage were forcibly removed from the restaurant.

U.S. talk show superstar Oprah Winfrey has been knocking on doors to get voters behind Stacey Abrams, much to the delight of those answering them.

In Georgia, Abrams' Republican rival Brian Kemp called the calls "vile" and "contrary to the highest ideals of our state and country".

Tensions grew after an Associated Press report in early October that more than 53,000 voter applications - almost 70 percent of them from black applicants - were on hold with Kemp's office ahead of the election. Those people had been taken off the voter rolls because of an "exact match" law, which allows zero discrepancies or errors on a voter's registration.

The entertainment icon, who rarely makes political endorsements, drew cheers when she said she's a registered independent who was not in Georgia at anyone's request. A DHS spokeswoman said in an emailed statement, "The State of Georgia has notified us of this issue".
