Kyle Keyser after the Atlanta mayoral election

Posted By on Wed, Nov 4, 2009 at 4:22 PM

After leaving Mary Norwood's campaign party at the Varsity, CL dropped by Noni's on Edgewood Avenue around 12:15 a.m. to speak with mayoral candidate Kyle Keyser.

The filmmaker and community activist, whose grassroots campaign tapped social media to reach voters and raise funds, received less than one percent of the votes in yesterday's election. (For a second yesterday Fox 5 said he had it wrapped up, which Keyser thought was amusing.)

We asked him how he felt now that the election's over.

A large part of a runoff is actually convincing voters to return to the polls. And Keyser's proven he can rally people around a cause. No word yet if he plans to endorse Mary Norwood or Kasim Reed. His nod of approval wouldn't be a deciding factor, but it surely wouldn't hurt.
