"We have more voters who participate in run-offs than she does", the source says. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams, when you don't vote".

At a separate appearance with Kemp Thursday morning, Pence mocked Abrams for receiving support from Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell on the campaign trail, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The competing scenes - from the candidates, to the audiences, to the headliner guests - underscore the choice Georgia voters face Tuesday in one of the nation's premier midterm matchups. Barack Obama will appear at a rally with Abrams in Atlanta on Friday, while Donald Trump is coming back to the state to stump for Kemp on Sunday.

He said that Winfrey's comments about voter suppression, in particular, will resonate in a state where that has been a concern in the past.

"We're gonna win. We're gonna win", she sang at the end. And I know it's easy for a lot of people to feel that you have no power against those injustices, but this is what I'm here to tell you: "This land was made for you and me".

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.

More than 1,000 staff, fans at a corporate level and media were still inside the stadium when the tragedy happened. An AFP photographer saw smoke coming from the wreckage at Leicester City Football Club's King Power Stadium.

"I was sitting at home in California, minding my own business, but I could not stop hearing about what's going on down here", Winfrey said, charming the crowd that had gathered to see her. 'I'm not here to test any waters. Winfrey said. "I am here today because of Stacey Abrams".

"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed, for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey said. "I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain". "To try to tie the candidacy of the Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp to the scourge of racism and even lynchings?"

Oprah Winfrey and Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams greet the audience during a town hall style event at the Cobb Civic Center on November 1, 2018 in Marietta, Georgia.

"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".

The race gained national attention early after Abrams, an African-American former state legislator, won the Democratic primary and with it the opportunity to become the first black female governor in the country. For decades, the media mogul has defied conventions and amassed a rare kind of fandom that defies racial, cultural and class boundaries. This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots. "But I also think they're excited by the possibility it could work".
