On November 19, 2011, Cox won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced incumbent Rick Nowlin (R) and Ralph Wilson (D) 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, since no candidate reached this threshold, a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between Cox and Nolan.[1] Cox defeated Nowlin to win the seat.[2]
