On November 19, 2011, Leopold won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced John Friedman (D), Harold Asevedo (R) and Mark Magee (R) 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, then a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between Leopold and Asevedo.[1] Leopold defeated Asevedo to win the seat.[2]
