The discussion began with a focus on Oprah Winfrey and the rousing speech she gave on Thursday for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D).

Kemp, who is Georgia's secretary of state, oversees the elections and denies he's made it harder for minorities to vote. "Obama pointed out, I am the most qualified candidate running".

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp still leads the Secretary of State's office despite being a candidate for governor. I'm not trying to test any waters - don't want to go in those waters.

The ruling said allowing these people to vote was in the public's best interest.

And, if Kemp has his way, a so-called "religious liberty" bill will pass into law which could dry up Georgia's "Hollywood" money. Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Kemp on Thursday, and criticized the star power Abrams' campaign has attracted.

"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Kemp's press secretary, Candice Broce, was quoted saying in the statement.

The Abrams camp likewise blasted the move but took a shot at Kemp and his highest profile supporter, President Donald Trump, who is coming to Georgia to campaign Sunday.

"I'm an African-American woman who is charting a very different path to doing this", Abrams told CNN last month. "I don't know why I'm giving Democrats free advice, but be careful with this".

Videos uploaded to Ms Winfrey's and Ms Abrams' social media showed the television personality knocking on doors canvassing for the hopeful governor.

Speaking to a mostly female audience north of downtown Atlanta, she said: "I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter".

"This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first".

"I absolutely am", the wide-eyed, smiling woman responds.

"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 dishonouring your family", she said. "Do you have an early voting plan?"
