Baylor ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana House of Representatives District 3. He faced incumbent Barbara Norton (D), Anna Marie Arpino (R) and Lynn Cawthorne (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. Cawthorne and Norton won the primary.[2]
