Who is Russ Carnahan?

John Russell "Russ" Carnahan was the U.S. Representative for Missouri's 3rd congressional district, serving from 2005 to 2013. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

The district includes the southern third of the city of St. Louis and most of the southern St. Louis suburbs including most of Jefferson County and all of Ste. Genevieve County. Some cities located in the district include: Webster Groves, Mehlville, Affton, and Oakville, and the southern suburbs of Arnold, Herculaneum, Pevely, Crystal City, Barnhart, Imperial, and Festus, as well as Ste. Genevieve in the neighboring Ste. Genevieve County.

Dramatic losses in population in St. Louis in the 2010 Census contributed to Missouri losing a Congressional seat effective 2013. In the proposed Republican created remapping of the state, Carnahan's district is slated to be dismantled. The bulk of the district, including Carnahan's home, was drawn into Missouri's 1st congressional district. The move placed Carnahan and William Lacy Clay, Jr. in the same district; Carnahan lost the primary to Clay for the seat on August 7, 2012.
