Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory’s Leaves Democrats to become Republican – Full Speech

Louisiana state Sen. Elbert Guillory has joined the Republican Party, becoming the first black Republican senator in Louisiana since Reconstruction. Sen Guillory announced his new affiliation during the @large Conference, an event aimed at attracting black conservatives to the Republican Party.

Guillory has a conservative voting record and has long been an ally of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration, particularly on education and retirement issues.

With Guillory’s switch, Republicans will hold 25 seats in the 39-member state Senate.
