Saying an attempt was made to hack the state's voter registration system, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp has launched an investigation of the Democratic Party of Georgia, reports the Atlanta Journal.

"I'm excited to be in a dead heat because we're going to turn out voters who never voted before", Abrams said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press". Both Abrams and Kemp denounced the calls. "I am not trying to test any water, don't want to go in those waters".

Numerous applications were flagged for failing to pass the state's "exact match" verification process, which requires that identification information on voter registration applications precisely match information already on file.

"I have earned the right to think for myself and to vote for myself".

"In four days, we get to stand up on November 6, and we get to say this is who we are because we are Georgia", Abrams said during the rally.

"For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn't have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family", Winfrey said on Thursday, according to HuffPo.

"You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state", she added. Big names have duly been attracted to the state: Donald Trump is due to stage a rally in Macon on Sunday, an event which prompted Kemp to withdraw from a scheduled debate.

Media icon Oprah Winfrey and Vice President Mike Pence are hitting the campaign trail Thursday in the Georgia governor's race.

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

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing.

"The Democratic Party of Georgia shares that concern, but we did not create, discover or attempt to take advantage of the deeply vulnerable system used by the Secretary of State's office".

On Saturday, it was reported that racist robocalls bankrolled by white supremacists were targeting Abrams and Winfrey.
