Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support: 'This Ain't Hollywood, This Is Georgia'

Vice President Mike Pence went after Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams Thursday over her recent round of high-profile celebrity endorsements.

At a campaign rally for her Republican opponent Brian Kemp, Pence said, “I’ve got a message for all of Stacey Abrams’ liberal Hollywood friends: This ain’t Hollywood. This is Georgia.”

“Brian Kemp’s getting the support of all kinds of hardworking, good people all across Georgia and Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals,” he argued.

“I heard Oprah is in town today. I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day. I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal, too," he said to laughs and applause from the crowd. 

Oprah Winfrey campaigned for Abrams earlier Thursday. She dispelled rumors that she may be considering a presidential run herself and said she had simply chosen to come to the state to support Abrams.

She said Abrams keeps "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state," and added that "if you're woke just a little bit, you know everyone is not treated equally."

The Georgia gubernatorial race is one of the more contentious races of the midterm elections. Abrams and Kemp are virtually tied, according to recent polling.
