Federal Judge Orders Georgia's Brian Kemp to Unblock Thousands From Voting

The recorded message, apparently sent out by a white supremacist group, features a male attempting to impersonate media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who recently rallied for Abrams. "And I want you to know that their blood has seeped into my DNA, and I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain".

"To be very clear, Brian Kemp's scurrilous claims are 100 percent false, and this so-called investigation was unknown to the Democratic Party of Georgia until a campaign operative in Kemp's official office released a statement this morning", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said in a statement.

The case was prompted by concerns that Kemp, who also heads the state's election system, was "purging voters from the rolls and a new exact match voting law was targeting minorities", the report states.

These are the scenes playing out amid the final furious days of the hotly contested and historic race for Georgia governor between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp.

Abrams, who is attempting to become the first black female governor in US history, then thanked Winfrey in a statement, reports ABC News.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", Pence said, adding "a message for all Stacey Abrams' liberal friends: This ain't Hollywood".

"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. She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching. oppression. suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

Pence also noted that Abrams' campaign is "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals".

After Thursday's dueling outsiders, former president Barack Obama will follow on Friday for Abrams. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.

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

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".

Kemp told the packed crowd of supporters that the race for governor was a simple choice: one between continued economic prosperity under Republican leadership, or a turn to "socialism" under Democrats.
