House Majority Leader Rep. Steve Harrelson (D-Texarkana) broke a bit of news tonight on KATV’s webshow the Daily Debrief with Jessica Dean. In response to a question I submitted about his plans for 2010, Harrelson announced that he will be seeking the State Senate seat for District 21. Harrelson will be term limited after this session as will the current State Senator for District 21, Sen. Barbara Horne.
To my knowledge, this is the first time in Arkansas that a candidacy has been announced on a live webshow. Good job, Jessica!
