Atlanta mayor's race too close to call

Keisha Lance Bottoms Claims Victory As Atlanta Mayor, Norwood Demands A Recount

Mary Norwood has demanded a recount in the Atlanta mayoral runoff election, but Keisha Lance Bottoms - leading with just 759 votes - has declared victory.

Candidate Keisha Bottoms, a Democrat, declared herself the victor of the race early Wednesday morning, while her opponent, Mary Norwood, an independent, requested a recount.

As of 10 a.m.

Yesterday, we reported that the mayoral election in Atlanta, Georgia was going to be nothing short of a showdown.

Keisha Lance Bottoms also went in depth with CBS46's Adam Harding, who spoke with her during a Facebook Live video recorded in our newsroom.

"And so for all the little girls out there who need somebody to believe that you're better than your circumstances".

"Just listening to Keisha and comparing what she said to the words of Ms. Norwood, I felt like she shared my values more", said Barbara McFarlin, a 50-year-old black woman who lives in the southwest Atlanta district Bottoms has represented on the city council.

Both candidates are members of Atlanta's city council.

Norwood told reporters she meant to seek a recount.

However, it may not be officially linked to the smartphone brand, so the pricing needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. It will be available in two variants - 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage.

"It's not over yet", Norwood said.

"We're behind the times in terms of having a modern transportation system compared to what you see in NY or Washington", said Kendra A. King Momon, professor of politics at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta.

Bottoms and Norwood stood for Tuesday's runoff after emerging from a crowded field of candidates last month.

Political analysts have said African-American voters will ultimately determine the outcome, but numerous city's most formidable challenges transcend race.

"Bottoms, who is black, faced Norwood, who is white". After losing that election, old recordings surfaced of Norwood speaking negatively about black voters. And so did her supporters. The city hasn't had a female mayor since 2010. She identifies as an independent.

"I'm so honored to be your 60th mayor", Bottoms reportedly told supporters at an Atlanta hotel.

"Bottoms, who is black and the chosen successor of Reed, is widely seen as a continuation of the black political machine that has dominated Atlanta politics since the mid-1970s".

If Norwood ultimately wins the race, she would be the city's first-elected white female mayor.
