On November 19, 2011, Price won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced fellow Democrats Heurlin Delpit, Gail Holland and Dwayne Bailey 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, a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between Bailey and Price.[1] Price defeated Bailey to win the seat.[2]
