Watch: Battling for Attention Over Oprah Mike Pence Forced to Tell GOP Voters ‘I’m Kind of a Big Deal Too’

"This is really going to make [Abrams], I think, the next governor of the state of Georgia".

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. The media mogul told a Cobb County crowd Thursday that she called the Democratic candidate out of the blue last week. "Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that". "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

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.

Winfrey did not mention Pence who, in appearances same day, charged Abrams with being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals" and derided Winfrey's presence as well as a recent campaign appearance for Abrams by Will Ferrell.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", Pence said, in an apparent reference to a line from Ferrell's hit 2004 film, "Anchorman".

More than 1.5 million of the state's nearly seven million registered voters have cast ballots already.

Saudi prosecutor to visit Turkey over Khashoggi’s case
Riyadh says 18 people have been arrested and five senior government officials have been sacked as part of the investigation. Turkish officials and some USA lawmakers allege the crown prince ordered the operation in which Jamal Khashoggi killed.

The pitches from Pence and Winfrey clearly fit Abrams' and Kemp's respective strategies.

She shared, "Georgia you've been on my mind and here's why". That's exactly where the polls and observers in Georgia see things going for Kemp and Abrams.

"I got a message for all of Stacy Abram's liberal Hollywood friends", he continued.

She highlighted the importance of positive messaging by candidates, and she encouraged all Americans to make their voices heard by voting on Tuesday.

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds.

"I do", the woman responds.
