Cravins is running in the 2011 election for District 24 of the Louisiana State Senate. He faced incumbent Elbert Guillory (D) and Kelly Scott in the primary election on October 22, 2011. Guillory and Cravins advanced past the primary to the general election which will be held on November 19, 2011.[2][3]

Races to watch

On September 12, 2011, Bayou Buzz issued a report on the top five Louisiana Senate races to watch. The race between Guillory, Cravins and Scott was ranked as number 5. The report states that Guillory advocated for a redistricting plan pushed for by the Louisiana Family Forum, an affiliate of Focus on the Family, that would have packed black voters into districts, reducing the number of majority-minority seats. This could potentially backfire, especially since Cravins has been popular while serving as Mayor of Opelousas.[4]
