From NY Times:

ATLANTA — Kasim Reed, a lawyer and former state legislator, was elected mayor of Atlanta by a margin of 714 votes, according to a recount of last week’s vote that concluded on Wednesday afternoon.

His opponent, Mary Norwood, a City Council member, requested the recount, which failed to reverse the outcome of last week’s runoff election. Under Georgia law, a recount is permitted when the margin of victory is less than 1 percent of the total vote.

The narrow victory, out of 84,000 votes cast, gives control over the city often known as the capital of the South to Mr. Reed, 40, a former state senator and former campaign manager for Mayor Shirley Franklin. Mr. Reed rocketed to first place from third in the campaign’s final months after he pledged to bolster crime-fighting in the city and consolidated the votes of black residents, who had supported several candidates in the primary.
