Vice President Mike Pence stumped for Republican candidate Brian Kemp in Dalton Georgia, on Thursday ahead of the November 6th midterms – the same day that Oprah Winfrey campaigned for Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams.

As Vice President Mike Pence was speaking at the Georgia rally, he reminded the audience that “this ain’t Hollywood!”
He said, “I heard Oprah is in town today. I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day. I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal, too.”
“And I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams’s liberal Hollywood friends: This ain’t Hollywood. This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that’s going to put Georgia values and Georgia first. And Brian Kemp is going to do just that.” Pence added.
Abrams announced Winfrey would campaign for her at two town hall events in the Georgia towns of Marietta and Decatur Thursday, Abrams wrote on Twitter Wednesday. (Video Below)
Winfrey joined other celebs who have supported Abrams, including rapper Common and actor Will Ferrell.
The big-name appearances come after a Tuesday FOX 5 poll showed Abrams and Kemp in a “statistical dead heat,” with Abrams at 48.1 percent and Kemp at 47.2 percent with a 3.9 percent margin of error. The poll was conducted Sunday and Monday and interviewed 623 Georgia voters.
