Kasim Reed finally becomes mayor of Atlanta!

Kasim Reed won the Atlanta mayor’s race by 714 votes, a recount of the Dec. 1 runoff results showed Wednesday. Reed won 42,549 votes while Mary Norwood won 41,835 votes, Fulton County officials said Wednesday. At 2:30 p.m. Norwood conceded. “Here we are at the end of a very very long two years,” she said. “The recount results are final and now it is time to accept it. ” Norwood requested a recount Tuesday. State law allows a candidate who finished within 1 percent of the winning candidate to request a recount. The initial results showed Norwood finished within 0.84 percent of Reed. Norwood is scheduled to discuss the results with reporters later Wednesday. Reed officials are scheduled to talk about the results afterward.
