Oprah Winfrey hit the campaign trail on Thursday, but not for herself, as many had hoped. Instead she was stumping in Georgia for Stacey Abrams, the state’s democratic candidate for governor.
Vice President Pence was in Georgia, too — campaigning for Abrams’s Republican opponent Brian Kemp. At a joint appearance, Pence objected to the bevy of celebrities backing Abrams, including Winfrey and actors such as Will Ferrell, Mark Ruffalo and Michael B. Jordan.
“I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I’m kind of a big deal, too,” Pence said, mocking Ferrell’s 2004 film, “Anchorman.” He also posed “a message for all of Stacey Abrams’s liberal Hollywood friends: This ain’t Hollywood. This is Georgia.”
