2011

Walsorth ran for re-election in 2011. He was 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 would have taken place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.[3]

2007

In 2007 Walsworth was elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 33. Walsworth (R) finished with 17,363 votes while his opponent Charles McDonald (D) finished with 16,217 votes.[4]
