Brown was running in the 2011 election for Louisiana Senate District 35. He was to face incumbent Robert Kostelka (R) and Jeff Guerriero (R) in the primary election on October 22, 2011.

However, Brown dropped out of the race on September 21 after Kostelka and Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell filed lawsuits challenging his residency. “Sometimes, even in politics, you have to look at what’s most important to you, and that’s my wife and my elderly parents, and I will not parade them through one of Sen. Kostelka’s kangaroo courts,” Brown stated.[3]


Brown’s father, the late Billy Brown, served in the Louisiana State Senate.[2]
