Oprah, Pence offer competing visions of 'Georgia values'

Oprah Winfrey has lent her star power to the Georgia Democrat aiming to become America's first black female governor in the midterm elections next week.

Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted.

Vice President Mike Pence was forced to remind Republican voters in Georgia on Thursday that he's important.

In a rousing speech in the Republican-leaning suburbs of Atlanta, Oprah Winfrey urged voters on Thursday to make history by backing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in next week's election.

Winfrey praised Abrams for "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".
