Borders was a mayoral candidate in 2009, and she ended up coming in third – not making the run-off that included Kasim Reed and Norwood. At the time, Borders endorsed Reed, and many believed she helped put him over the top. Reed beat Norwood by just 714 votes.
Eight years later, the tables have turned.
Borders has just sent out a carefully-worded text expressing her support for Norwood.
