In late September, Coleman asked a judge to review the election returns, stating that he believed there should have been a runoff between himself and Jolly. "I don't know what the outcome will be. All I know is that we have identified some irregularities ... and we want people to do the honest thing for the election," Coleman said.[2]

Patsy Gregory and Victor Horn ran in the Republican primary. The general election took place on November 8, 2011.[3]


Coleman and his wife, Bernadette, have two children.
