Early Life and Congress
Within his first month of life, Harrison Richardson threw his hat into the ring as the USWP candidate for Utah. He hoped to become the youngest U.S. Congressman in eRepublik history. His platform included U.S. withdrawal from Atlantis and high taxes to support a large, powerful military. He also included a section on his favorite "music" to give voters a taste of his personality. Despite his best efforts he was not able to win the state of Utah, but he was unfettered by the loss in Utah and continued to be an active member of the United States Workers Party.
Two months later Harrison ran a new campaign in Texas. His platform incorporated many ideas he used in Utah. However, his efforts in Texas would not yield the congress position he had aimed for. He continued to be an active member of the political community, despite the loss in April.
Determined to become a congressman, Harrison Richardson finally broke through in the May 2009 elections, becoming Texas' representative.
Prior to being elected, Harrison had worked as the Deputy Secretary of State, although he performed many of the duties of the acting Secretary of State. In the middle of May he dropped the "Deputy" and became the official Secretary of State, a position he held until the end of the scrabman administration.
