"I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message", Winfrey said, explaining that she tracked down Abrams' cell phone number and called her to say she wanted to offer assistance in the final days of the campaign. "Like I head I heard Oprah is in town today".
But after her speech, in a sit-down interview with Abrams - reminiscent of the 25-year television run of her daytime television show - she noted they were "just two women from MS".
"We have this incredible opportunity to make history", Winfrey told the capacity crowd "We have our inalienable right to vote because the one place where we are all equal, is at the polls".
"I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed for the right for the right for the equality at the polls", Winfrey cried.
"She's home!" Winfrey says in the video, standing at a door. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy".
In one of the country's most high-profile races for governor, Democrat Stacey Abrams is trying to end 16 years of GOP rule in Georgia, with Republican Brian Kemp in a position to affirm his party's dominance. "And to vote for myself", Winfrey said to cheers.

Derby , who are coached by Chelsea legend Lampard, went behind when Tomori inadvertently deflected a cross into his own net. Attention now turns back to league action this weekend and the manager wants his side to continue the good form built up.
Abrams is running on a campaign that includes Medicaid expansion, and "common-sense gun control", Winfrey noted. I don't want to run.
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.
"I said, when we were watching it, 'If that women can get folks to eat pizza with a cauliflower crust on it, she is going to get that woman elected the first black female governor.' She took people to church", the co-host added.
