On August 4, 2011, Adley announced he would be running for re-election. He ran 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.[1][2]


In 2007 Adley was re-elected to the Louisiana State Senate District 36. Adley (D) finished with 24,371 votes while his opponent Tyler Nezat (R) finished with 9,004 votes.[3]
