Star power in Atlanta to rally for Abrams, Kemp
ATLANTA - The eyes of the nation are on Georgia and the race for the Governor's seat. With just days to go before the election, polls show it's almost a dead heat between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp. Now heavy hitters from Hollywood stars to U.S. presidents are coming to town to tip the scales.
Wednesday afternoon hundreds of people waited in line for hours to get a ticket for a chance to see President Barack Obama. He'll be at Morehouse College Friday evening to campaign for Abrams.
Debbie Wnukowski is planning to attend the rally.
"He's the one that's going to come and get everyone motivated to get everyone to come to the polls for Stacey Abrams," said Wnukowski.
Celebrity Oprah Winfrey is also making several appearances with Abrams. They'll be at 2 town halls Thursday. The first at 12:30 at the Cobb Civic Center in Marietta. The second at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts and Community Center in Decatur at 4 p.m.

It's not just Abrams who has friends in high places. Vice President Mike Pence is also in Georgia Thursday campaigning for Republican candidate Brian Kemp.
On Sunday, President Donald Trump will make a trip to the Peach State to campaign for Kemp in Macon.
"I'd like to see him. That's a big agenda for him to come down south here to campaign for him," said David Rigney, a Kemp supporter.
"That tells you how important that Republican vote is to get stuff done in Washington," said Carolyn Rigney, a Kemp supporter.
Voter Francis Ward says having all the big names in town is energizing. He says it's bound to get more people involved and more people to the polls.
'You got fans on both sides. A lot of people love Trump. A lot of people love Obama. There's going to be a lot of energy in Atlanta," said Ward.
