Former State Senator Kasim Reed has pulled into second place with 22 percent.
That's according to a new poll released by WSB television and Insider Advantage.
That spot had been held by Lisa Borders who is now polling at 17 percent. Both candidates are still far behind front runner Mary Norwood.
Norwood is one of two white candidates in the race and an Atlanta Council member. She is now showing at 41 percent, up from 39 percent in earlier polls.
In this race the second place position is crucial because a runoff could be possible if no one gets at least 50 percent plus one vote.
All five mayoral candidates will debate live on GPB Television Sunday evening at 7 pm. The debate is sponsored by the Atlanta Press Club.
