Interesting position, because local Republicans have, from time to time, touting a tax credit that has turned Georgia into a film-making force; the industry contributed an estimated $2.7 billion in direct spending in Georgia a year ago, according to a report in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Trump did not elaborate and offered no evidence for his assertion, which seemed to be a potential preview of the political message he will deliver Sunday, two days before the election, at a Georgia rally for Brian Kemp, Abrams' Republican rival.

When asked why the race is so close, Kemp told Fox News, "Stacey Abrams has raised tens of millions of dollars from all over the country with the progressive, liberal, socialist movement of the Democratic Party pouring in money into this race to try to buy this election". Oprah, who campaigned with Abrams in Marietta this week, was derided as a "magical negro".

Lowe's said is expects to close the impacted stores by the end of the company's 2018 fiscal year - February 1, 2019. The majority of impacted stores, according to the company, are located within 10 miles of another Lowe's store.

The call, sent to an unknown number of Georgians, impersonates Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire media titan who came to Georgia on Thursday to support Abrams.

She also urged against any reboot of recent speculation that she might run for president in 2020. "I hope you are going to listen to my endorsement", Trump said.

"I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell, I'm kind of a big deal, too", Pence said, adding "a message for all Stacey Abrams' liberal friends: This ain't Hollywood". Kemp has embraced Trump and echoed the president's hard-line policies on immigration, and he's focused much of his campaigning in the state's more conservative pockets beyond metro Atlanta.

Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams.

She went door-to-door asking Abrams' supporters to vote early and volunteer for the campaign. "I want to make it very clear ..." Democrat Andrew Gillum could become the first black Floridian governor, which is why The Road to Power carried out the robocalls in both Florida and Georgia. "I'm here today to support a change-maker".

Republicans in Georgia, including Kemp, have pushed for strict voter ID laws, citizenship checks and aggressive voter roll maintenance in the name of protecting elections against fraud and noncitizens voting. In a video Winfrey posted on her Instagram page, one woman jumped when she opened the door.

Daniel Cormier makes UFC history with victory over Derrick Lewis
Much like attacking a bucket of chicken, Cormier tagged Lewis everywhere: leg, thigh, and then the neck for the decisive blow. Cormier told Brock Lesnar to bring the Universal Title to their fight next year in his post-fight interview.

The robocall went out to Georgia voters, but it is unclear how many received it. "Are you voting for her?"
