"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy". With Metz consistently pulling down just a couple of points of support, no poll of the race so far has either Kemp nor Abrams breaking 50 percent.

She also went door to door, to the shock of some Georgia voters. Kemp has since said the 53,000 Georgians would be able to vote in November.

"We're gonna win. We're gonna win", she sang at the end. "I think that's what you are hearing from Oprah".

Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic party causes. "I'm not trying to test any waters", she said.

"I've got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood", Pence said.

"I am 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... and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain."

"We have this incredible opportunity to make history", Winfrey told the capacity crowd "We have our inalienable right to vote because the one place where we are all equal, is at the polls".

Ms Abrams, 44, is running against Georgia's Republican Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, who has had the backing of own big name: Vice President Mike Pence.

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. For decades, the media mogul has defied conventions and amassed a rare kind of fandom that defies racial, cultural and class boundaries.

In another video, Winfrey said, "It's my very first time ever canvassing for anybody, and it has been a really interesting experience because when you knock on a door, you don't know what people are going to do or say or how they're going to react".
