The issue of voter suppression has been central to the governor's race in Georgia where Republican candidate Brian Kemp serves as secretary of state, the office that oversees the voter rolls.

"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.

Abrams, an African-American woman, has accused Kemp of intentionally purging voters to target minorities.

"I don't want to run, okay?"

In a Thursday speech delivered before a town hall, Winfrey praised gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and advised people to honor their ancestors by exercising their right to vote.

Noting that he heard Winfrey was in the Peach State, Pence said, "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: this ain't Hollywood".

"I don't want to run, OK?"

Mimicking Winfrey's famous talk show giveaways, the message promises voters who select Abrams that, "Everybody gets a vehicle!"

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have travelled to the state to campaign for Kemp, while former President Barack Obama, along with celebrities Oprah Winfrey and Will Ferrell, are among those who have campaigned for Abrams.

A spokeswoman for Abrams lumped Kemp in with President Trump, suggesting the president created the climate for the racist calls to air.

"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.

She shared, "Georgia you've been on my mind and here's why".

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing. "I'm not testing the waters".

"This ain't Hollywood, this is Georgia - and Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", Mr Pence said at a rally for Mr Kemp this week. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too".

The headline "AFTER FAILED HACKING ATTEMPT, SOS LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC PARTY" sat front-and-centre on the secretary of state's government website - directly beneath a voter's guide to polling locations.
