In the Atlanta mayor's race, Mary Norwood has 43 percent of the vote, with 93 percent of the precincts reporting. She'll be headed for a runoff with Kasim Reed, who has 38 percent.
Lisa Borders, the city council president and third-place finisher, has conceded.
Watch for racial politics to play out in this one, as Norwood would be the city's first white mayor in a generation.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
