Murray ran for re-election in 2011. He ran 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 will take place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.<ref>[http://staticresults.sos.la.gov/10222011/10222011_Legislative.html ''Louisiana Secretary of State'' "Unofficial Election Results," October 22, 2011]</ref>
