The discussion began with a focus on Oprah Winfrey and the rousing speech she gave on Thursday for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D).
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".
She faces Republican Brian Kemp, who was appearing with Vice President Mike Pence at a trio of events in the state Thursday. "I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand because I'm thinking of running myself".
The allegations of voter suppression and the possibility that Abrams could become the first African-American woman to serve as a governor in the United States has drawn national attention to the race.
"You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote", she added. Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey have stumped for Abrams. "I'm not trying to test any waters", she said.

A spokeswoman for Abrams lumped Kemp in with President Trump, suggesting the president created the climate for the racist calls to air.
"I'm excited to be in a dead heat because we're going to turn out voters who never voted before", Abrams said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press". "I'm here today because of Stacey Abrams".
"The Democratic Party of Georgia shares that concern, but we did not create, discover or attempt to take advantage of the deeply vulnerable system used by the Secretary of State's office".
