The Democratic Party's chances of winning control of the Arizona House of Representatives, where Republicans have a 33-27 edge, just became a little bit slimmer. From the Arizona Republic :
State Rep. Mark DeSimone, arrested late last week on charges related to domestic violence said he will leave his legislative post, but did not specify when.
He worked to earn a reputation as a business-friendly Democrat, and for those efforts, won the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry's "Freshman of the Year" award last week.
He was also seen as crucial to the Democrats' hopes of taking control of the House of Representatives this fall, since he won his seat in a district with a strong GOP edge.
