Learn to trust the Fizz: As we reported (in fact, we said we'd put money on it), City Council member Bruce Harrell, who heads up the council's public-safety committee, jumped into the race for mayor today, where he'll square off against his fellow council member Tim Burgess, along with former council member Peter Steinbrueck, state senator Ed Murray, and, of course, current Mayor Mike McGinn. 

Harrell's web site includes a long list of individual endorsements, among them former council members Richard McIver and David Della and ex-mayor Wes Uhlman. 

We're meeting with Harrell this afternoon and will have a longer post on his candidacy later today.
