Legal decisions and a racist robocall in Georgia governor's race

Legal decisions and a racist robocall in Georgia governor's race

The voice on the robocall pretends to be Oprah Winfrey, who stumped for Abrams in Georgia earlier this week.

Ms Winfrey blasted attacks on Ms Abrams that she says she saw in her hotel room - Republican ads casts Ms Abrams as "too extreme" and "radical" for Georgia - as "noise" that is "designed to confound you with fear". "I don't want to go in those waters".

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp blames liberals for spreading the claim and defends the large voter roll purge in Georgia in 2016.

On "Outnumbered", Washington Post editor and Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Winfrey is an "entity unto herself", and her endorsement may carry some weight, but he believes Hollywood elites won't swing races for Democrats in next week's midterm elections.

"You keep standing strong for the values that matter to me, and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state", she added.

Khashoggi's killing threatens Trump dreams for Mideast peace
But some of his comments appeared to contradict previous statements from Riyadh, marking yet another shift in the official story. Turkish government sources have claimed that Mr Khashoggi was tortured and murdered by a hit squad flown in from Riyadh.

Democrat Stacey Abrams is now running for governor of Georgia, and if elected, she would be the first African-American woman governor ever.

In the call, which was obtained by Channel 2 in Atlanta, a man pretends to be the media giant Winfrey, who campaigned alongside Abrams on Thursday.

"I think we've made great progress, particularly at the individual polling stations and with the tabulations of votes", Warner said.

Abrams would be the nation's first black female governor. She recalled generations of black Americans who faced "lynching. oppression. suppression", and declared that "their blood has seeped into my DNA" and forced her to the polls.

"I see that same potential in Stacey Abrams", the vile message continues. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton. Pence said Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals, referring to Winfrey and actor Will Ferrell.

Former NFL Player, Sacramento Standout Rae Carruth Released From Prison
Former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth was released from prison on Monday after almost 20 years in jail. The child, Chancellor Lee Adams , was born with severe cerebral palsy due to trauma from the shooting .

Donald Trump, who plans to appear with Mr Kemp later this week told reporters at the White House: "I've always liked Oprah".

Numerous applications were flagged for failing to pass the state's "exact match" verification process, which requires that identification information on voter registration applications precisely match information already on file.

Winfrey surprised local Georgia residents by knocking on their doors and canvassing. Goosing a GOP base that holds Trump and Pence in high regard is key to the approach.

Winfrey addressed a crowd in Marietta, Georgia, on the same day and encouraged people to vote and to vote for Abrams for governor.
