This video should fire up a few people. State Sen. Elbert Guillory (D-La.) recently made the decision to switch his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican, and in this video he explains why. There is nothing here that conservatives have not embraced for years, but it’s still nice to see a politician switch and explain himself in this way.
In a statement, Guillory said…
Over the last couple years there’s just been increasing distance between me and the Democratic Party. They’ve left Louisiana and American values. Things that are part of my community, gun rights, family issues, there’s a lot of issues where that party has just left us behind. Most major decisions in Louisiana are made by Republicans in room filled with Republicans, I feel it’s best for my district that we have a presence in those rooms.
His video certainly seems genuine, but in his statement he implies he’s been locked-out of decisions because of his party affiliation. What say you?
