Bailey ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent Louisiana's 2nd District and lost. Bailey faced incumbent Cedric Richmond (D), Gary Landrieu (D), Josue Larose (R) and Caleb Trotter (L) in the November 6 blanket primary. Louisiana does not hold a primary before the November 6 general election. If a candidate had not receive a majority of the vote on that date, the top two finishers would have gone to a runoff on December 8.

Bailey ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana House of Representatives District 58. He faced fellow Democrats Heurlin Delpit, Gail Holland and Ed Price 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. Price defeated Bailey in the November 19 general election to win the seat.

About the district
- See also: Ascension Parish Schools, Louisiana
Ascension Parish overperformed in comparison to the rest of Louisiana in terms of education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 23.3 percent of Ascension Parish residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 21.3 percent for Louisiana as a whole. The median household income for Ascension Parish was $67,688 compared to $44,673 for the state of Louisiana. The percentage of people below poverty level for Ascension Parish was 11.2 percent while it was 18.7 percent for the state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
