See also: Louisiana State Senate elections, 2011

Morrish ran for re-election in 2011. He was unopposed in the October 22 primary. 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, if no candidate reaches this threshold, then a general election would have taken place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.[1]

2007

In 2007 Morrish was elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 25. Morrish (R) finished with 11,186 votes while his opponent Gil Pinac (D) finished with 9,556 votes.[2]
