Nowlin lost his bid for re-election in 2011. He faced Kenny Cox (D) and Ralph Wilson (D) 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, since no candidate reached this threshold, a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between Cox and Nolan.[2] Cox defeated Nowlin to win the seat.[3]
