Malone is running in the 2011 election for Mississippi House of Representatives District 45. He ran unopposed in the primary on August 2, 2011. Jay Mathis won the August 2 Republican primary. The general election takes place on November 8, 2011. 
District 45 has been targeted by the GOP as a possible pickup in its attempt to flip the state House to Republican control for the first time since Reconstruction. The Mississippi GOP's push hopes to mirror successful efforts in other southern states, including North Carolina and Louisiana, to break the last vestiges of the old Democratic "solid south."
On November 6, 2007 Malone was re-elected in District 45, defeating Republican challenger Jay Mathis.
