Oprah Winfrey to campaign for Stacey Abrams

Oprah Winfrey will be in Cobb County and DeKalb County to campaign on Thursday for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

Abrams' campaign confirmed that the billionaire media mogul will appear with Abrams, who is vying to become the country's first black female governor.

In a press release, Abram's campaign said that Oprah "will share why she believes Stacey Abrams is the best candidate to represent all of Georgia" as part of an attempt to encourage "all eligible voters to cast their ballots for Stacey Abrams."

Winfrey is part of a series of high-profile figures marking the final days of Abrams' tight race with Republican Brian Kemp.
