White did not seek re-election to District 64 in 2011. Instead, he ran for a seat in the Louisiana State Senate, representing District 6.[1] He defeated Mike Mannino (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. 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.[2]
