Grace ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana Senate District 2. He faced Elton Aubert (D), Troy Brown (D), Alfred Carter (R), Michael Bell (D) and Zaine Kasem (R) 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. Aubert and Brown advanced past the primary.[1]
