'Just Ask Hillary': 'Outnumbered' on Impact of Oprah, Hollywood on Midterm Voters
During a stump speech for Republican Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp on Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence said the American people don't want lawmakers backed and bankrolled by "Hollywood liberals."
Pence made the remark at a rally in Savannah, just hours after Oprah Winfrey gave a passionate endorsement of Kemp's Democratic opponent, Stacey Abrams, who is looking to become the nation's first black female governor.
Pence said he had a message for Abrams and her other celebrity friends -- including Will Ferrell -- who rallied for her in Georgia: "This ain't Hollywood!"
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.
"After Oprah, celebrities don't work. They don't help. Just ask Hillary Clinton. She had all the celebrities in 2016," Hurt said. "I think if anything if just annoys people and it turns them off."
Dagen McDowell noted that Democratic Texas Senate candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke has perhaps the most celebrity endorsements of any candidate -- including LeBron James and Willie Nelson -- yet he's still trailing incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) in the polls.
