Elections

See also: Louisiana State Senate elections, 2011

LaFleur ran for re-election in 2011. He defeated Paul Miller (R) 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]

The Louisiana Committee for a Republican Majority and the GOP victory fund are expected to play big roles.[2]
