Atlanta mayor seeks 2nd term in Tuesday's election

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Voters in Atlanta head to the polls Tuesday to decide whether to re-elect Mayor Kasim Reed.

Reed has three challengers, although his opponents have little name recognition and have not reported raising any money.

Reed is known for his strong support of President Barack Obama and his working relationship with Republican Gov. Nathan Deal on issues such as economic development.

Reed hasn't been immune to criticism. Open government advocates have challenged Reed over a plan to use public financing to help support a new Atlanta Falcons stadium, and a group of street vendors have expressed their unhappiness since the city took steps to curtail the selling of goods on public streets.

Reed's challengers are Al Bartell, Fraser Duke and Glenn Wrightson.
