Now, Oprah is taking the reins by joining Abrams on Thursday for two town hall conversations with constituents in Cobb County and DeKalb County.
And Oprah doesn’t just campaign for anyone.
Her biggest political endorsements came in 2008, when she campaigned in person for Obama, and 2016 when she endorsed Hillary Clinton in her presidential run.
In a statement to Buzzfeed News, Abrams said, “I am honored to have Oprah join me for uplifting and honest conversations with voters about the clear choice before us in this election and the boundless potential of Georgians.”
