GOP candidate in Atlanta mayoral race seeks recount after narrow loss

Bottoms led with 26 percent of the vote while Norwood had 21 percent. She noted that absentee ballots from military members had yet to be included in the final count. Bottoms is a proud graduate of Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) and woman of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. The provisional ballots will reportedly be counted and added to the final vote total on Thursday. HU and FAMU have many reasons to be proud and Keisha Lance Bottoms, Kasim Reed, and Shirley Franklin are three of them.

She squared off against Norwood, an independent, in the nonpartisan runoff to succeed Reed, who is term limited from seeking re-election.

Tuesday's runoff was triggered by the November 7 general election, in which Norwood finished second with 22 percent of the vote to Bottoms' 27 percent.

Acknowledging this history, Norwood said, "I've done this before".

Voters in Tuesday's runoff for Atlanta mayor are deciding between Mary Norwood and Keisha Lance Bottoms.

"This has been a very, very, very long campaign, but as we look ahead toward the future, I look forward to engaging with each of you, making sure that our city continues to move forward", Bottoms said during speech Tuesday night. Mayor Reed has held his current position as the 59th mayor of Atlanta since 2010.

Petty appeared in six games and made four starts in 2016, throwing for 809 yards with three touchdowns and seven interceptions. And when, are you ready? "I still have a lot of confidence in those guys, and look forward to when it is their time".

His tenure as mayor became one of the major factors in the race.

Still, Norwood has repeatedly said that loss was partly due to voter fraud.

Norwood told supporters that just 759 votes separated the candidates early Wednesday morning.

The city of Atlanta welcomes is 60th mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms.

And Bottoms got herself a last-minute boost, as well.

Polls have closed in a runoff election between two Atlanta councilwomen vying for the city's top job. The results have not yet been certified.
