Ronald William Harris was a 2012 Democratic candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 6th Congressional District of Missouri. Harris was defeated by Kyle Yarber in the Democratic primary on August 7, 2012.[1]


Harris, the son of a Kansas City fire fighter, was a long time resident of Jackson County. He moved away after reported crimes against his property and person. Harris says he filed more than 20 police reports, and called the police as many times in order to "combat crime in his community over a 15-year period as a small business owner."[2]

He ran for Missouri's House of Representatives 40th District in 1996, and 1998. Harris was a candidate for Congress in 2000 in Missouri's 5th. Harris also ran for the Kansas City School board in 2000 and 2002, under a platform to increase the need for students to attend safe schools.[2]
