Senator Elbert Guillory feels his recent switch to the Republican Party is something fellow Democrats will follow
Senator Guillory says the Republican Party better represents his morals and values
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — Senator Elbert Guillory's recent switch to the Republican Party in the middle of the legislative session was a shock to many, but it is something he has thought about doing for the past couple of years. After comments from Karen Carter-Peterson, the Louisiana head of the Democratic Party, were made suggesting that anyone who opposes Obamacare is racist due to the President's race, Senator Guillory had to quickly crossover.
"That's so despicable. That is so far from reality, and that comment was made by the head of the Louisiana Democratic Party. I could no longer be associated with anything that nutty," says Senator Guillory.
Senator Guillory says the Republican Party better fits his core values of God, family, and moral responsibility. Since his switch he has welcomed more black Democrats into the Republican Party, and is looking forward to continuing that trend in months to come.
