At 25, an age that reminds many of post-collegiate aimlessness, Robert Harrington has chosen a different path. The Moberly resident is married with two sons and works 60 hours per week as a general manager at Aaron's Sales and Lease. But what really sets Harrington apart is his other job: candidate for the Missouri House of Representatives. Bucking the trend of political apathy in his generation, Democrat Harrington is taking on the two-term Republican incumbent in Missouri's 22nd district. Win or lose in November, Robert Harrington is challenging the status quo - and common perceptions about young adults.
