"Brian Kemp's scurrilous claims are 100 per cent false, and this so-called investigation was unknown to the Democratic Party of Georgia until a campaign operative in Kemp's official office released a statement this morning", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the state Democratic Party, wrote in a statement to reporters.
"I'm encouraged to see so many young voters showing up at the polls, and I'm also encouraged to see that we have a growing pool of independent voters who I think will break for democrats during this election", she said.
"I want to make it very clear to all of the press, everybody, I am not here because I am making some grandstand because I am thinking about running myself", she said.
Georgia Secretary of State and Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp opened an investigation into the state's Democratic Party Sunday, alleging a failed attempt to hack the Georgia voter registration system.
Winfrey did not mention Pence who, in appearances same day, charged Abrams with being "bankrolled by Hollywood liberals" and derided Winfrey's presence as well as a recent campaign appearance for Abrams by Will Ferrell.

She shared, "Georgia you've been on my mind and here's why".
"I'm the only candidate with a plan to get that done and to do that without vitriol, without vilifying people", she added.
Georgia, however, is home to a booming film industry, thanks to more than $1 billion in tax credits over the past decade, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Well I'd like to remind Stacey Abrams and Oprah and Will Ferrell-I'm kind of a big deal too".
"I am canvassing for Stacey Abrams", Winfrey said.
Civil rights groups sued Kemp in October over 50,000 voting registration applications that were placed on hold due to Georgia's "exact-match" law which requires personal information on voter applications to match state databases.
Kemp told the packed crowd of supporters that the race for governor was a simple choice: one between continued economic prosperity under Republican leadership, or a turn to "socialism" under Democrats.
