National celebrity Oprah Winfrey hit the campaign trail in Georgia Thursday, telling voters across the state to reject “propaganda and fear” and elect Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams next week.
Winfrey was speaking with Abram’s supporters outside of Atlanta, Georgia when she urged those in attendance to “vote your values.”
Oprah to women:
"Vote your values. Vote your conscience … the vitriol and the ads, they are designed to confuse and confound you with fear … When you know the right thing, and you can feel it … you can't be influenced by propaganda and fear." pic.twitter.com/1RH3hvLrcB

GEORGIA DEM CANDIDATE: I’m ‘SICK AND TIRED’ of Hearing About ‘Free Market’ Solutions
Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams raised eyebrows throughout the state Sunday; saying she was “sick and tired” of hearing about “free market” solutions to help lower healthcare costs for Americans.
Abrams was speaking with supporters Sunday when she slammed the “free market” as a method of reducing premiums for Georgia’s residents; claiming “I’ve never seen the free market write a prescription in rural Georgia.”
“I am sick and tired of hearing about the free market being the solution to this problem because I’ve never seen the free market write a prescription in rural Georgia,” Abrams told the crowd. “I’ve never seen the free market show up and give someone Metformin so they can have a little bit of control of their diabetes before it turns into an amputation of their foot.”
“I’ve never seen the free market say ‘I’m going to replace that stint in your heart next door and not make you go 200 miles to get it done,'” Abrams added. “The problem with the free market is the free market needs to make a profit, and there is no profit in doing the right thing.”
SLIP OF THE TONGUE? Georgia Dem Admits ‘Blue Wave’ Includes ‘Undocumented’ Voters
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams raised eyebrows throughout the state over the weekend; bizarrely admitting the predicted “blue wave” requires all voters -including those without “documentation.”
Abrams was speaking during a campaign rally late-last week when she commented on the progressives’ prospects of retaking control of Congress this fall; saying the “blue wave” was comprised of “those who are documented and undocumented.”
“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans,” Abrams said to cheers. “It is made up of those who are told they are not worthy of being here … those who are documented and undocumented.”
