Councilman Andre Dickens holds a slim lead over former Mayor Kasim Reed for the number two spot in Atlanta’s mayoral race, just a few hundred votes, meaning he will likely be running against city council president Felicia Moore.

Polling in the weeks leading up to the election showed nearly 40% undecided, but Dickens says that’s not what he was hearing from voters. He joined “Morning Edition” to discuss the results and next steps for his campaign.
