Description This marginally competitive House race features Freshman Rep. Mike Ferguson, a pro-life yet otherwise moderate Republican, versus Tim Carden, in a matchup of current vs. former political prodigies. Ferguson leads and has a much more friendly district than he had under the old lines, but a strong Democratic wave could still endanger Ferguson, who is unknown to about a fourth of the district.
