"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too". Abrams' campaign has called on him to resign, while he has said that it is a manufactured problem at a time when registration is at a record high.

"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 Stacey Abrams".

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand for myself. And I know it's easy for a lot of people to feel that you have no power against those injustices, but this is what I'm here to tell you: This land was made for you and me".

She added that Abrams is "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

"I don't want to run, okay? I'm not trying to test any waters", she said.
