Reed, a Democrat, is up for re-election this year. But some speculated Reed could become a candidate for the seat that will be vacated next year by Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss. If Reed wins his race for mayor, another four year term would have him in that office in 2016, the year U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, a Republican, is up for re-election.
Reed affirmed his commitment to run the city for two terms, which would keep him in office until 2017.
“I plan to serve two terms (as mayor),” Reed said.
