Meteoric rise. Knocked off Russell Capps and his future was all in from of him ... but clearly he went at things too fast. Like my dad used to say, pride goes before the fall.

His resignation, though, gives Democrats a chance to appoint someone who may be able to hold onto this seat in the swing 41st District. The district map is below. Harrell's replacement must live in it when he/she is sworn in. Selection is by elected Democrats, including precinct chairs and vice chairs, who live in the district.
