Bottoms stops by FOX 5, talks about victory in Atlanta mayor's race

The margin was whisker-thin, but for Bottoms, the vote was more than sufficient to claim victory and to start planning her move into the Atlanta mayor's office. Norwood lost to Kasim Reed by 714 votes.

Both women are Atlanta City Council members.

But Norwood took the podium at her own rally and said that absentee ballots from military members were yet to figure in the totals, and she believes some ballots have yet to be tabulated.

According to the Associated Press, Bottoms led with less than one percent, which is the minimum needed for any opponent to call for a recount.

Though votes tracked along racial lines in north-side and south-side neighborhoods, both candidates won votes in the political battleground of east Atlanta.

Still, numerous city's most formidable challenges transcend race.

A Norwood victory would mean Atlanta - a gentrifying city where the African American share of the population remains a majority but has gone down over the years - would have its first white mayor in more than 40 years. Everyone seems to care about transportation, public safety and affordable housing.

"We just don't know", she said. Because neither of them had the majority of the vote, under Atlanta's rules, the top two candidates then entered a runoff election, running a much tighter and more heated race than the general election, which saw a candidate field of 11 candidates.

Bottoms, a Democrat, squared off against Norwood, an independent, in the nonpartisan runoff to succeed Reed, who is term limited from seeking re-election. "The only place I've seen them change is paper ballots", said director Richard Barron.
