Paul Hollis is a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives, representing District 104. He was first elected to the chamber in 2011.

In the 2014 legislative session, Hollis and 12 other members of the House formed the Louisiana Legislative Conservative Coalition. The coalition, under the chair of Rep. Alan Seabaugh (R), will attempt to pull the Louisiana Republican Legislative Delegation to the right and re-instill conservative principles to the delegation.[1]

He was a 2014 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from Louisiana.[2] He ended his campaign on July 14, 2014.[3]

Hollis ran in the 2014 election for the U.S. Senate, representing Louisiana.

He announced on December 30, 2013, that he would run for the Senate seat in Louisiana.[2] He indicated that the reason behind his run was the lack of support for fellow Republican candidates Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness.[2]

“I want to give them another option,” he said. “I don’t see a whole lot of excitement for any of the candidates in this race. If I did, I certainly wouldn’t get in this mix.”[2]

Hollis ended his campaign on July 14, 2014.[3]

On October 22, 2011, Hollis won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He defeated Christopher Trahan (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.
