Powell won election in the special election for District 59 of the Mississippi House of Representatives. The seat was vacant following Kevin McGee's (R) resignation on November 19, 2012, following his criminal prosecution in an ethics case over public contracts that went to his family's company. McGee agreed to pay a $10,000 fine to resolve the case. Powell defeated Bradley Lum, Benny L. Hubbard and Scot Allen in the special election, which took place on January 8. Candidates had until December 10, 2012 to file. Special elections in Mississippi are nonpartisan.[2][3][4][5]
