He represented the state's 43rd House district, including constituents in Catawba and Iredell counties (later the 101st district and now the 95th district) from 1981 until he retired in 1998. While in office, Brawley was elected the President of the National Republican Legislators Association and was named National Legislator of the Year in 1995.
In 2012, Brawley was again elected to the House from the Iredell County-based 95th district. He won the May 8 Republican primary, which was tantamount to election, since no Democrat filed for the seat.  Meanwhile, Brawley was also in 2012 named to lead the North Carolina chapter of the Faith and Freedom Coalition.
In April 2013, Brawley filed House Bill 640 that would allow lobbyists to give unreported gifts to state lawmakers in North Carolina.
Later on May 28, 2013 Brawley was asked on the NC House floor by Rep. Jeff Collins, how it was that he knew that Speaker Tillis had made a promise of no more toll roads. Brawley calmly replied he told the Truckers Association. A video of that statement by Tillis was posted on YouTube, and mysteriously scrubbed within hours. It later reappeared on YouTube once more.
