Historic Vote in Atlanta: Low, Low Turnout Expected

Monday, November 23, 2009

We check in on a potentially historic runoff for mayor of Atlanta, wher polls indicate Atlantans may elect the first white mayor since the 1970s. Turnout is expected to be low, however, and neither candidate is inspiring much excitement, so the vote may turn out to be a referendum on the local party machine and not about race. Last night the two candidates debated; we talk with Rickey Bevington, of Georgia Public Broadcasting, who hosted the debate.
