Oprah is heading to Georgia this week to campaign for Stacey Abrams to become the first black woman governor which means: You get to vote! You get to vote! You get to vote! Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Governor in Georgia, announced the news on Twitter Wednesday morning. If Abrams wins in Georgia on Nov. 6, she will be the first black female governor in the country’s history. In one the most-watched races of this midterm season, Winfrey joins former President Barack Obama and stars like Will Ferrell and Tiffany Haddish in an effort to get out the vote for Abrams.
