By "Ceasar" he meant City Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell — who was sitting in the front row and who has officially declared he is running for mayor having already raised more than a half-million dollars.
By "Keisha" he meant Keisha Lance Bottoms, who was also riding high Thursday as the head of the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority who helped broker the Turner Field deal.
She was sitting on stage with the mayor.
Immediately after the ceremony, standing in the hot sun at the stadium, Bottoms tried desperately to keep the focus on the sale.
“This day is about celebrating Georgia State and what is happening in this community,” Bottoms said. “And I don’t want anything that I would say personally to take away from that celebration. So that is a conversation for another day.”
If that day ever happens, along with Mitchell, Bottoms would find herself in a race against Peter Aman, Margaret Kaiser and Cathy Woolard who have already declared a declaration of intent to run.
That is unless Reed decides to out someone else.
