Stacey Abrams Slams Brian Kemp’s ‘Desperate’ Hacking Claim Against Georgia Democrats

Stacey Abrams Slams Brian Kemp’s ‘Desperate’ Hacking Claim Against Georgia Democrats

Georgia gubernatorial candidates (L-R) Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp are shown in a debate that also included Libertarian Ted Metz at Georgia Public Broadcasting in Midtown October 23, 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia.

In a statement issued to the Washington Post, Kemp's spokeswoman, Candice L. Broce, called the ruling "a minor change to the current system". Civil rights groups celebrated the ruling as a major victory.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", said Pence, who is not from Georgia.

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".

Perhaps even more than President Barack Obama, who will campaign for Abrams on Friday, Winfrey's appeal closely aligns with Abrams' political pitch. President Trump will appear with Kemp on Sunday.

The Georgia governor's race is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation and is attracting top surrogates from both parties in the final days before the election.

Investigative journalism website WhoWhatWhy reported Sunday that they had received an email and document, sent from the Democratic Party of Georgia to election security experts, that highlights "massive" vulnerabilities within the state's online voter registration system.

"This ain't Hollywood!" said Pence Thursday at a rally in Savannah.

As a black woman, Ms Winfrey noted her kinship to two groups historically denied ballot access in the United States. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton.

The 64-year-old media titan shared a video on her Instagram page holding a clipboard and knocking on the door of a voter named Denise.

Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail.

"This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor", the Georgia Democratic Party's executive director, Rebecca DeHart, said in a statement. Goosing a GOP base that holds Trump and Pence in high regard is key to the approach.

Among that "onslaught", Winfrey blasted Republican ads she'd seen in her hotel room casting Abrams as too radical for the state, calling it "noise...created to confound you with fear".

Winfrey and Abrams greet a crowd gathered for a town hall conversation in Marietta, Ga.
