Mayoral Runoff Race: Who's Backing Whom

In case you're not voting for write-in candidate Alex Barrella...

Joeff Candidates

Well, this damned contest is almost over. Atlanta's next mayor will likely be decided some time around midnight. Or maybe 1 a.m. It'll be dark outside; we know that.

We're not picking a favorite in this outrageous contest. We just hope the results are definitive. We want to sleep tonight.

We've compiled a not-so-comprehensive list of who supports whom, in case you're one of those people who needs some celebrity to tell them what to do.
