Oprah, Pence visit Georgia in final days of campaign

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Media icon Oprah Winfrey and Vice President Mike Pence will be dueling campaigners Thursday in the Georgia governor's race.

Winfrey will attend two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams. Both events are in metro Atlanta.

Pence is scheduled to appear with Republican nominee Brian Kemp at three rallies around the state.

High-profile visits continue with former President Barack Obama coming Friday to Atlanta for Abrams and President Donald Trump campaigning Sunday for Kemp.

Polls suggest Abrams and Kemp are deadlocked in one of the hottest matchups of the midterm elections.

Abrams would be the first black female governor in U.S. history. Kemp is trying to prevent Democrats from establishing Georgia as a legitimate presidential battleground state.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.
