'Just Ask Hillary': 'Outnumbered' on Impact of Oprah, Hollywood on Midterm Voters

The hotly contested Georgia governor's race has garnered national attention and is now neck and neck, with Ms Abrams up against Republican nominee Brian Kemp.

Georgia's Secretary of State's office says it has launched an investigation into a "failed attempt to hack the state's voter registration system" on Saturday evening.

- Both the campaigns for Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp have come out to denounce a racist robocall that is now targeting Georgians.

The top two candidates each have a favorable rating of 46 percent, while their unfavorable number is also even at 42 percent.

Abrams would be the first black female governor in American history, and she's sought the post as an unapologetic liberal trying to draw new voters to the polls and prove that Georgia's growth and diversity make it a legitimate two-party battleground.

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

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

A federal judge on Friday issued a blow to the GOP when she ruled that Georgia must allow more than 3,000 people affected by the states "exact match" to vote in this year's midterm elections on November 4.

Vice President Mike Pence tried to share a fairly typical Republican talking point in Georgia on Thursday, slamming Hollywood and the celebrities visiting the state to support Democrat Stacey Abrams, including Oprah Winfrey and Will Ferrell. We also noted Abrams' response on State of the Union.

And someone out front was wearing a giant chicken suit holding a sign that reads "too chicken to debate", alluding to Kemp withdrawing from a debate scheduled Sunday in favor of appearing in Macon with President Donald Trump.

Polling in the race is extremely close, most analysts rating the outcome a toss-up.

"With respect to Tuesday's election, we deem this a total victory in our fight against Secretary of State Brian Kemp's exact match scheme", said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

Over 50,000 voters in Georgia have been flagged as ineligible, due to errors with their voter registration information. The state barred these voters from voting, claiming they could not confirm their citizenship, leading to the voting rights group to sue the state. A DHS spokeswoman said in an emailed statement, "The State of Georgia has notified us of this issue".
