"While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes", Candice Broce, spokeswoman for the secretary of state's office, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams made a final push on the Sunday morning talk shows ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections - slamming her opponent for what she calls voter suppression and attempts to sway the ballot.

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand, because I'm thinking of running myself", she said.

These are the scenes playing out amid the final furious days of the hotly contested and historic race for Georgia governor between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp.

Noting that he heard Winfrey was in the Peach State, Pence said, "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: this ain't Hollywood".

The actress is set to hit the campaign trail for Abrams this week and gave a heartfelt speech at Thursday's event. "I don't want to run".

Abrams, a former minority leader in the state house, who would be the first non-white, non-male governor of Georgia and the first female African American governor in USA history.

"I don't want to run, okay?" A top Abrams aide said both Kemp and Trump have contributed to a poisonous atmosphere, and that Kemp has been silent on previous racially loaded attacks on Abrams.

"It's my very first time ever canvassing for anybody, and it has been a really interesting experience because when you knock on a door, you don't know what people are going to do or say or how they're going to react", she said.

"I'm the only candidate with a plan to get that done and to do that without vitriol, without vilifying people", she added.

The recorded message, apparently sent out by a white supremacist group, features a male attempting to impersonate media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who recently rallied for Abrams.

"I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter", Winfrey said.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp still leads the Secretary of State's office despite being a candidate for governor.
