On November 19, 2011, Reynolds won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced Jerri Ray de Pingre (R), Gerald Holland (R) and Ronnie Broughton (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 between de Pingre and Reynolds. Reynolds defeated de Pingre to win the seat.
