Futrell faced incumbent Mark Dudenhefer in this new and fast-growing exurban and suburban district south of Washington, DC. The district gave Governor Bob McDonnell (R) 58 percent of the vote in 2009, but Democrats hoped to replicate the results of 2012, when President Barack Obama (D) earned 58 percent of the vote in this district. Dudenhefer was elected in the 2011 cycle, so he had not been in office long at the time of the 2013 election. However, Futrell posted information copied from another candidate's website on his own page, reportedly mistakenly, which some interpreted as indicating a lack of organization in his campaign.[4][5]


Futrell and his wife, Bernadine, have one child, Mike Futrell II. Futrell currently resides in Woodbridge, Virginia.
