Cawthorne ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana House of Representatives District 3. He faced incumbent Barbara Norton (D), Ernest Baylor Jr. (D) and Anna Marie Arpino (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, a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between top-two vote getters Norton and Cawthorne.[2] Norton defeated Cawthorne to win re-election.[3]
