Media proprietor and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey gave the 2017 graduation commence speech to a crowd of hundreds at Agnes Scott College in Decatur.

General public ticket reservations are now ongoing and will close at 5 p.m. today.

The most recent poll, conducted by Opinion Saavy for FOX 5, show the race as statistically even, which is in line with other recent polling.

Early voting numbers have already surpassed 1 million in Georgia, indicating the turnout is going to be much higher this year than in most statewide election years. President Donald Trump and Vice President Pence have come forward in the final days before the election to stump for Brian Kemp, while former President Barack Obama will campaign this weekend for Abrams.

According to the website www.Georgiapol.com, which covers Georgia politics, Winfrey rarely stumps for candidates. In fact, the last time she campaigned for anyone, it was for then-Senator Obama.

I really wish I could see Oprah with Stacey, didn't know I needed tickets.
Racist Republicans just hate all this love for black candidates.
Vote Blue on November 6th and let's take back America!
