Oprah, Trump, Obama: Georgia's Star-Studded Closing Act

Winfrey is the latest high-profile Hollywood figure to go all-in for Abrams, whose candidacy has risen to national prominence as the former state legislator and Yale Law School graduate became the first African American woman to become a major party nominee for US governor, and is vying to be Georgia's first black governor. Her most visible foray into electoral politics was as an outspoken supporter of Obama, her fellow Chicagoan, when he first won the White House in 2008.

Abrams and her opponent, Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, are in a very tight race with one another.

Abrams also reminded McCain that late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia even said, "It is possible to believe in responsible gun ownership and to believe that there should be regulations on that".

Fuming FA consider appeal after Man Utd boss Mourinho avoids ban
The Portuguese received an apology from both Ianni and opposite number Sarri and said he considered the matter closed. He spent most of his days at Sambenedettese, a club on Italy's east coast, who now play in Serie C.

McCain asked Abrams, who is proud to have an F-rating from the NRA, if she was in favor of banning at infamous AR-15 assault rifle in the wake of the synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Kemp adviser Ryan Mahoney says his candidate is willing to find another time slot, but Groh-Wargo says Abrams is booked through Tuesday's election. Polling has Abrams and Kemp in a statistical tie. There's a possibility of a December runoff, given that Libertarian Ted Metz also is on the ballot and Georgia's requirement that the victor garner a majority of the votes. Instead, Kemp is expected to "host" Trump in a rally in Macon that same day, according to the station.

Winfrey, once the subject of speculation that she wanted to run for the White House, has ruled out challenging President Trump in 2020. Abrams responded, "I'm not anti-gun".

Obama will appear with Abrams on Friday at a cluster of historically black colleges near downtown Atlanta.
