Martiny 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.[2]


In 2007 Martiny was re-elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 10. Martiny (R) finished with 19,414 votes while his opponent Michael Zito finished with 8,752 votes.[3]
