Atlanta mayor's race too close to call

For the second time in the city's history, Atlanta has elected a black woman as its mayor.

But we should allow Bottoms to begin her term with a clean slate, and prove to her constituents, why she deserved to win the race.

The race was extremely close, with Lance Bottoms securing just 759 more votes than Mary Norwood, who has asked for a recount.

"The votes for Ms. Bottoms have come primarily from the south side of the city, which is predominantly African-American, and the votes for Ms. Norwood came from the north end of the city which is predominantly white".

'Nutcracker' to be presented this weekend
The dancers regularly perform in front of a full theater, but Trueblood said there's always room for more at the Rabobank Theater. Sixty dancers, many from the Gresham area, practice for eight hours every Saturday in addition to practicing on their own.

A candidate in Atlanta's mayoral race is calling for a recount after voters delivered a almost split decision Tuesday night.

Bottoms and Norwood had around 26 percent and 21 percent, respectively, in the vote in the general election on November 6. Her victory also would continue the Democratic Party's hold on an office it has held without interruption since 1879. "This is a city for all of us and I'm so honored to be your 60th mayor".

Norwood is awaiting counts of military and provisional ballots, which won't be counted until Thursday.

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

Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (HBAN) Has Another Very Strong Trading Session
The Stoneridge Investment Partners Llc holds 258,531 shares with $8.68 million value, up from 212,391 last quarter. Everence Capital Mgmt has 0.06% invested in Huntington Bancshares Incorporated (NASDAQ: HBAN ) for 18,154 shares.

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

Voters were deciding between Mary Norwood, who calls herself an independent, and Keisha Lance Bottoms, the chosen successor of outgoing Mayor Kasim Reed.

If Norwood wins, Atlanta would have its first-ever white female mayor. Bernie Sanders of Vermont - had kind words to say about her after the general election.
