ATLANTA (AP) — Oprah Winfrey will campaign Thursday for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as part of a caravan of high-profile figures marking the final days of Abrams’ tight race with Republican Brian Kemp.

Abrams’ campaign confirmed that the billionaire media mogul will appear with Abrams, who is vying to become the country’s first black female governor. The Atlanta Voice and BuzzFeed News first reported Winfrey’s plans.

Vice President Mike Pence has multiple stops scheduled with Kemp.

Former President Barack Obama will campaign Friday for Abrams, and President Donald Trump is slated to be in Georgia on Sunday.
