The two women seeking to become Atlanta’s 60th mayor in history enter their final weekend of campaigning before next Tuesday’s election.
On Friday, both Mary Norwood and Keisha Lance Bottoms will participate in a forum with Atlanta school superintendent Dr. Meria Carstarphen.
On Sunday, U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) will be hosting a rally for Bottoms at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park at 5 pm.
Both Bottoms and Norwood have picked up a number of endorsements over the final full week of the campaign. On Wednesday, Norwood was endorsed by Cathy Woolard, who finished third in the Nov. 7 election.
In a rally outside Atlanta City Hall on Thursday, Bottoms was supported by various local officials, including Atlanta city council members Cleta Winslow, Michael Julian Bond, Joyce Sheperd, C.T. Martin and Andrea Boone; state Reps. David Dreyer and Pat Gardner; former state Sen. Jason Carter, and Fulton County Commissioner Marvin Arrington, Jr.
Rappers T.I. and Killer Mike also attended.
Norwood recently earned the endorsements of Peter Aman and Ceasar Mitchell, who also ran for mayor earlier this month, as well as former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin and the Buckhead Coalition, headed by another former Atlanta mayor, Sam Massell.
Bottoms has been endorsed by current Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed, and former Atlanta mayor and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young and Kwanza Hall, who also ran for mayor on Nov. 7. Bottoms has also been endorsed by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Bottoms also released portions of her tax returns on Thursday after repeated challenges from Norwood to do so. Norwood has released her full personal and business returns.
