Two of the three State Representative races in Christian County are now contested after a Democrat filed in District 4.
Princeton lawyer Jarrod Jackson is running against incumbent Republican State Representative Lynn Bechler of Marion. District 4 includes Crittenden, Livingston, Caldwell and a portion of Christian County.
The 36-year old Jackson says he's had a lifelong interest in politics and his work experience and education make him well-qualified.
Jackson says his family has deep roots in Caldwell County and he's passionate about this area of western Kentucky.
Both Jackson and Bechler are currently unopposed in their respective primaries.
