Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said on Friday that she would not seek a second term in the mayor’s office, arguing that “it is time to pass the baton to someone else.”

“It is abundantly clear to me today that it is time to pass the baton on to someone else,” Bottoms said. Her remarks came hours after she made the surprise announcement on Thursday evening to note seek reelection this year.

Speaking to reporters at City Hall, Bottoms said that she had grappled with whether to run again since early on in her term as mayor. She said there was no single reason behind her decision, but noted that her heart was no longer in fight to continue her job.

As for her future, she said she has no immediate plans to seek another office or accept another job, waving off rumors that she would be taking a position at Chicago-based Walgreens.
