The Georgia governor's race is one of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation and is attracting top surrogates from both parties in the final days before the election.
"She is a phenomenal candidate and person and she can make history by becoming the first ever Black Women elected Governor in America", he wrote in an Instagram post.
Oprah Winfrey has quashed rumours that she will make a bid for the U.S. presidency by telling voters at a rally in Georgia, "I don't want to run". Pence is scheduled to appear with Republican nominee Brian Kemp at three rallies around the state. "I don't want to run".
At the event on Thursday, Winfrey again dismissed those prospects.
Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic Party causes and some fans earlier this year tried to encourage her to run against Republican President Donald Trump in 2020.
"I've earned the right to do what I want to do when I want to do it".

"I'm not here because I'm making some grandstand, I'm thinking about running myself", Winfrey said. "I paid for myself and I approve this message".
"All of us may have been created equal, but if you're woke. you've got sense enough to know that everybody is not treated equally", she said.
Lemon made the remarks while discussing Oprah Winfrey's campaign speech this week for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) with CNN host Chris Cuomo. "You are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don't vote".
Rapper and actor Common attended a "Souls to the Polls" rally with Abrams on Sunday in Atlanta.
The bishop also said, "If you're going to address people based on their color only, I think it's pretty sad".
"Over the last few weeks we've seen increasing desperation from many dark corners trying to steal the election, cheat, lie, and prey on people's fears rather than having the respect to listen to voters and speak to their hopes", Collazo said.
