The offensive automated phone call uses derogatory language to refer to Winfrey and Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor.

"Iconic" is a Republican gubernatorial candidate-and secretary of state, and election chief-invoking the "exact-match" law to suspend 53,000 voter-registration applications for infractions as minor as a hyphen missing from a surname. It is also a fact that Brian Kemp is the last person who can be trusted on cyber security given his record of leaking the personal information and social security numbers of six million Georgians.

An Abrams win would be historic - she would become the first African American female governor in American history. Trump and Kemp both support that and I believe that they should be here rather than liberal politicians.

In a flurry of statements sent on Sunday, Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said the "scurrilous claims are 100 percent false" and slammed the move as a "political stunt".

The drama played out on a day Kemp campaigned alongside President Donald Trump in Macon.

It's unclear how many Oprah Winfrey robo-calls have been received.

The Georgia secretary of state's official website says the office "opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia" regarding a failed hacking attempt on Saturday night, adding that it also alerted federal authorities.

"He is trying to rile up his base by misleading voters yet again", Abrams told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"I think, unfortunately, Secretary Kemp has not only abused his power, he has failed to do his job", Abrams said in an interview with ABC on Monday.

'I just want to say: Jesus don't like ugly... "And no one on the ballot needs a vote because we're women".

In 2016, he said a DHS computer made an unsuccessful attempt to breach the firewall guarding Georgia's voter data.

Former President Obama recently joined Abrams on the campaign trail, suggesting that Kemp has "already been caught" guilty of voter suppression.

Kemp and other Republican groups have blasted Abrams as an extremist with backing from "socialists" who, in Kemp's estimation, "want to turn Georgia into California".

A stunning new poll released Sunday night shows the GOP candidate in Georgia's gubernatorial race taking a major lead; opening up an 11 point advantage over his Democratic opponent just 24 hours before voters head to the polls.

The Georgia outcome is among the most closely watched of any midterm contests for reasons beyond Abrams' race and gender. We can't let her steal this election. He also said Wright had passed the details to the state Democratic Party. Her son, Jordan Davis, was shot and killed at a Jacksonville gas station in 2012 after an argument over loud music.
