US elections 2024: Ten House races to watch

WASHINGTON, April 30 (Reuters) - Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives will be defending a narrow majority in the Nov. 5 elections, with court-ordered redistricting putting some of their seats at risk.

Below are some of the races to watch as the Republican and Democratic parties battle through 2024 for control of the chamber.

New York state Senator Tim Kennedy, a Democrat, and Gary Dickson, a Republican town supervisor, are facing off in the April 30 special election to replace Republican Representative Brian Higgins, who left Congress to head a performing arts center.

A Democratic win - which is expected in the district - would further erode Republicans' narrow House majority. But Republicans are expected to regain members with other special elections later this year.
