atlanta mayor election

Tuesday’s runoff election for mayor of Atlanta likely hinges more on how voters feel about current Mayor Kasim Reed than hopefuls Keisha Lance Bottoms and Mary Norwood.

Keisha Bottoms, who forced a run-off election Tuesday in Atlanta's mayoral race against Mary Norwood, seemingly has an edge.

Atlanta could have its first non-Black mayor in more than 40 years if city councilwoman Mary Norwood, who is White, wins the election next month.
