An AJC blog about Atlanta politics, Georgia politics, Georgia and metro Atlanta election campaigns. Because all politics is local.

‘Political Rewind’ replay: The Atlanta race for mayor – and Jerusalem, too.

Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” couldn’t help but lead on the finish to the Atlanta mayoral race, in which Keisha Lance Bottoms defeated Mary Norwood by a mere 759 votes.

One early nugget: Some Buckhead precincts didn’t prove as strong for Norwood as they had eight years ago, when she was defeated by Kasim Reed.

Today’s panelists: Host Bill Nigut; GOP pollster Mark Rountree of Landmark Communications; Jared Yate Sexton, author and Georgia Southern University academic; Melita Easters, the founder of Georgia WIN List; and Dov Wilker, regional director of the American Jewish Committee.
