Brown won the 2011 election for Louisiana Senate District 2. He faced Elton Aubert (D), Michael Bell (D), Alfred Carter (R), George Grace Jr. (D) and Zaine Kasem (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. However, since no candidate reached this threshold, then a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters, which in this case were Aubert and Brown.[2] Brown defeated Aubert in the general election.[3]
