If you're going to take a swipe at Will Ferrell, you might as well use one of his lines from Anchorman.
Vice President Mike Pence spent much of his Thursday in Georgia stumping for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. Kemp is running against Democrat Stacey Abrams, who has serious star power behind her — Ferrell campaigned for her earlier this week, and Oprah Winfrey got crowds riled up on Thursday.
During an appearance in Dalton, Pence mocked Winfrey and Ferrell, saying Kemp is "getting the support of all kinds of hard-working, good people all across Georgia, and Stacey Abrams is being bankrolled by Hollywood liberals." After criticizing Abrams and her policies, Pence channeled his inner Ron Burgundy. "I'd like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell I'm kind of a big deal, too," he said. "I got a message for all of Stacey Abrams' liberal Hollywood friends: This ain't Hollywood. This is Georgia. And Georgia wants a governor that's going to put Georgia values and Georgia first." Pence is from Indiana, and Winfrey is from Mississippi but spent her adult life in Chicago. Catherine Garcia
