Celebrity entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey is using her considerable influence to entice people to vote blue in the state of Georgia.

On Thursday, Winfrey appeared at a virtual campaign event hosted by Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. There, the pair and discussed a variety of topics including abortion, gun control and education.

However, Winfrey expressed displeasure about what she describes as a lack of voter enthusiasm in the state.

“And yet, in spite of so many people not having what they need for just basic survival needs, in terms of health care and other economics, there is this lethargy around voting,” Winfrey said. “It is like, I understand the pandemic wore everybody out and people are exhausted from all of the craziness and the politics and the lies.”

This was not the first time that Winfrey has promoted Abrams. In 2018, the celebrity entrepreneur attempted to bolster support for the Democrat’s first gubernatorial bid.
