Miller ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana Senate District 28. He was defeated by incumbent Eric LaFleur (D) 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.

Races to watch
On September 12, 2011, Bayou Buzz issued a report on the top five Louisiana Senate races to watch. The race between LaFleur and Miller was ranked as number 4. The report states that, although LaFleur is the incumbent, his district has become more Republican. The Louisiana Committee for a Republican Majority and the GOP victory fund are expected to play big roles.
