Oprah Winfrey delivered a stump speech Thursday for Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, who is looking to become the nation's first black female governor. 

The talk show icon, who's been rumored as a presidential candidate in recent years, spoke at an event in Marietta with Abrams, who is in a close race with Republican Brian Kemp. She emphasized that she's an independent and sought out Abrams after seeing her on television.

Winfrey also highlighted the importance of positive messaging by candidates and for everyone to vote on Tuesday. 

"I want to make it very clear to all the press, to everybody: I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand because I'm thinking about running myself. I don't want to run, OK? ... I'm not trying to test any waters," she said, shaking her head as some in the crowd protested for her to reconsider.

"I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams."



Reacting on "Outnumbered," Dagen McDowell said it's clear Oprah has a "spiritual connection" with many people in the country. 

"If that woman 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 predicted. 


Lisa Boothe disagreed, saying Abrams is the most far-left nominee in Georgia history, favoring higher taxes, single-payer health care and assault weapons seizures. 

"You're killing our Oprah moment here," Jessica Tarlov joked, likening Oprah's get-out-the-vote message to what Michelle Obama has been communicating to voters. 

McDowell asked Juan Williams whether he hopes Winfrey will run in 2020. Williams said he's unsure, but believes the midterm elections hinge on suburban white women and how they view President Trump in the first two years of his administration. 

Melissa Francis noted that Winfrey never mentioned Trump or Kemp in her address.

Winfrey will reportedly knock on doors with Abrams in the Atlanta area ahead of a visit to the state by Barack Obama. On the other side, Vice President Mike Pence will stump for Kemp Thursday, while President Trump has scheduled a rally for Sunday in Macon.
