Donahue ran for re-election in 2011. He defeated Gary Leonard (R) in the October 22 primary with more than 50 percent of the vote. 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.[1]
