Elbert Guillory

Originally elected as a Democrat, Elbert Guillory made national news by switching to the Republican Party in June of 2013. Guillory articulated why he was chosen to become a Republican in a video that went viral online, garnering him national media attention.

Elbert Lee Guillory has announced that he will run for Congress in the fourth district in Louisiana. The seat is currently held by Rep. John Fleming. Congressman Fleming will be running for the U.S. Senate to replace David Vitter, who is retiring.

“America is at an important crossroads,” said Guillory. “Americans must make a decision to embrace personal freedoms, free market, capitalism, and basic American values or continue this errant journey toward European-style nanny state collectivism,” added Guillory. “In Congress, I will be a voice for liberty. We have a duty to preserve America.”

Elbert Guillory completed nearly a decade long career as a Louisiana State Legislator. Guillory completed his service to Louisiana as a State Senator, where he also served as Chairman of the Retirement Committee. Guillory was a champion for Pro-Life Legislation and played a vital role in Gov. Jindal’s sweeping School Choice Reforms in 2012. He was inducted into the Louisiana Justice Hall of Fame for his work on incarceration.

He is a Navy Veteran and has practiced law four decades.

Elbert Guillory is 100% pro-Life and a champion for the 2nd Amendment. He believes in a strong national defense and that radical Islam must be confronted and defeated. He is a free market Republican who believes that lower taxes and less regulation is the only path to job creation and a growing economy.
