In 2006 he was appointed chief of staff to Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, where he served until his election to the State Senate.

Holt was elected to the State Senate on July 27, 2010, taking 64% of the vote in the Republican primary and running unopposed in the general election. He took office on November 16, 2010. He succeeded Glenn Coffee, the first Republican Senate president pro tempore in Oklahoma history.

On his first day of office in November 2010, Holt was elected to the Senate leadership as majority caucus vice chair. He was also named vice chair of the Senate Business & Commerce Committee and vice chair of the Senate Redistricting Committee. His first session as a senator was notable for his efforts to lower the Oklahoma income tax, and his efforts to ensure that local taxpayers have control over their tax dollars. In his first session, a local weekly publication named Holt "Most Shining Legislator". Later that year, he was credited with branding Route 66 where it passes through Oklahoma City, to define it as a tourist destination.

Mayor of Oklahoma City

Holt was elected mayor on February 13, 2018, defeating Taylor Neighbors and Randall Smith in a nonpartisan race. Numerous prominent elected Republicans and Democrats endorsed him, including four Oklahoma governors of both parties. Holt was sworn in as mayor of Oklahoma City on April 10, 2018. He asked Willa Johnson, the first female African American Member of the Oklahoma City Council, to administer his oath of office. That day, he relocated the pictures of former mayors from the mayoral conference room and replaced them with pictures of Oklahoma City kids representing the city's demographics among young people, who he said were 60% nonwhite. He resigned from the state senate before taking office. At the time of his swearing-in, Holt was 39 years and one month old, making him the youngest mayor of Oklahoma City since 1923 and the youngest mayor of a U.S. city over 500,000, as well as the first Native American mayor of Oklahoma City. Carrying a unifying message of "One OKC", Holt's stated priorities upon taking office were upgrading core services, continuing improvements in quality of life, improving public education and incorporating the diversity of the city into decision-making.
