RLC2014: LA Senator Elbert Guillory likens inter-party fighting to who is “blacker” argument

State Senator Elbert Guillory from Louisiana spoke at the Republican Leadership Conference and provided some good advice to the GOP. Guillory, a former Democrat turned Republican just last year, said:

We have to get rid of the hyphens. We have to be Republicans.

Guillory said that he was surprised that Republicans felt the need to really hash out the various differences between them and likened their fighting to a who is blacker than who amongst African Americans.

I found that it’s not who is blacker than who, it’s who’s redder than who,

One thing is for certain. If the Republican party doesn’t find a way to come together before 2016, we lessen our chances of securing the White House. As they say, a house divided cannot stand.
