He faced Elton Aubert (D), Troy Brown (D), Michael Bell (D), George Grace Jr. (D) and Zaine Kasem (R) in the primary election on October 22, 2011. Because Louisiana uses a blanket primary system, a candidate can be declared the overall winner of the seat by garnering 50 percent +1 of the vote in the primary. Aubert and Brown advanced past the primary.[1]
