Morrish ran for re-election in 2011. He was unopposed in the October 22 primary. 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. However, if no candidate reaches this threshold, then a general election would have taken place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.
In 2007 Morrish was elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 25. Morrish (R) finished with 11,186 votes while his opponent Gil Pinac (D) finished with 9,556 votes.
