Louisiana Senator Switches to Republican PartyPosted by J Craig on May 31, 2013
Guillory announced his switch from the Democratic Party at a luncheon of the At Large Conference, a gathering of black conservatives from around the nation.
The senator switched from Republican to Democrat back in 2007. He has taken a more conservative stance on the majority of issues though.
The luncheon was scheduled to present the Frederick Douglass Award as a conservative leader in the Legislature. The conference’s goal is “to celebrate the determination by black conservatives to lead Americans away from dependency on the government.”
This will surely shake things up down in Louisiana and could prove to do the same nationally.
According to the New Orleans Times Picayune:
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.
Senator Guillory’s voting record has been mostly conservative thus far anyway, but now he is making it official…again. Let the hate from the tolerant left begin now.
