Sky News' US correspondent, Amanda Walker, said: "You know that it's getting close when you have these big names coming out to campaign."Having Oprah Winfrey behind you is about as good as you could hope for."

The actress and talk show host, 64, gave a rousing speech to Democrat supporters ahead of next Tuesday's vote in which she called Ms Abrams a "changemaker".Speaking to a mostly female audience north of downtown Atlanta, Winfrey said: "I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter."I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed.
