Winfrey, who took the stage to booming applause, said she wanted to come to Georgia to support Abrams because she saw how Abrams is "handling herself" amid an onslaught of "haters". "Come on, Oprah! It's dehumanizing, it's completely baseless, it's totally cruel, and again I say, you're much better than that and you're much bigger than that".

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event.

In a direct call to women, Winfrey said it hasn't even been 100 years since women had the right to vote, and called for women to honor the legacy of those who fought for the right.

She added that she is in Georgia because of all the men and women throughout history who were "suppressed, repressed and oppressed for the right and the equality at the polls".

Winfrey, who has been urged to run for office for months now, told the crowd: "I'm not trying to test any waters, don't want to go in those waters". "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy".

"And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first", he said.

Winfrey also spoke in Georgia Thursday on behalf of Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams, comments that earned prominent coverage on the major cable news networks.

Mr Pence has criticised Ms Abrams for using Ms Winfrey during her campaign.

"I'd like to remind Stacey, and Oprah, and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", simpered Pence, former TV talk show host and current Donald Trump yes-man.

Vice President Mike Pence campaigned for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp.

"I got a message for all of Stacy Abram's liberal Hollywood friends", he continued.

Oprah surprised some Georgia residents after she went door knocking, saying it was her very first time canvassing for any political candidate and that she's optimistic about Abrams. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.
