On November 19, 2011, Broadwater won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced George Holton (R), Joel Morgan (R), Ivory Dyson (D) and David Ridder (I) 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 Broadwater and Holton.[1] Broadwater defeated Holton to win the seat.[2]
