ATLANTA —

Media icon Oprah Winfrey and Vice President Mike Pence are hitting the campaign trail Thursday in the Georgia governor's race.

Winfrey attends two forums with Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams. Pence is scheduled to appear with Republican nominee Brian Kemp at three rallies around the state.

More high-profile visits are planned, with former President Barack Obama coming to Atlanta Friday for Abrams and President Donald Trump campaigning Sunday for Kemp.

Polls suggest Abrams and Kemp are deadlocked in one of the hottest matchups of the midterm elections.

Abrams would be the nation's first black female governor. Kemp is trying to prevent Democrats from establishing Georgia as a legitimate presidential battleground state.

More than 1.5 million Georgians already have cast ballots.
