Winfrey will be joining Abrams on the campaign trail. I don't wanna go in those waters, ' she said, shaking her head and waving her finger.

She added that Abrams is "standing strong for the values that matter to me and the values that matter to Georgians all over this state".

The call, sent to an unknown number of Georgians, impersonates Oprah Winfrey, the billionaire media titan who came to Georgia on Thursday to support Abrams.
