Churchill successfully ran for the nomination of the Nova Scotia Liberal Party in the riding of Yarmouth in spring 2010. He won the by-election held on June 22, 2010 which was contested between six mostly high profile candidates. Churchill garnered just over half the popular vote, defeating a former MLA John Deveau, a former 20-year mayor of the Town of Yarmouth Charles Crosby and two minor party leaders.
On October 22, 2013 Churchill was appointed to the Executive Council of Nova Scotia where he serves as Minister of Natural Resources.
