FREE AT LAST PAC LAUNCHED
Elbert Guillory to Serve as Honorary Chairman
WASHINGTON DC – Elbert Guillory, a Louisiana State Senator who recently made national news with a YouTube video “Why I Am a Republican”, has announced today that he will serve as honorary chairman of the Free At Last PAC.
The Free at Last PAC was formed by several leaders as an effort to support Black Republicans who run for federal office and also to educate Blacks about the values of the Republican Party.
“I believe that the values of the Black community and the values of the Republican Party are one in the same,” said Elbert Guillory. “But somehow the Democrat Party has created the illusion that their agenda is what’s best for Black people, and we intend to shine the light of truth on that falsehood,” added Guillory.
“There are dozens of good solid Black Republican candidates out there seeking federal office,” said Derek Babcock, President of the Free At Last PAC. “We’re trying to create a resource for them so that they can compete. It’s time for more Black Republicans to be in congress,” added Babcock.
The Free at Last PAC plans to continue using both traditional and new media, as well as grassroots campaigns, to reach out to Black Americans about Republican values.
“I recently attended the Republican Study Committee, as a guest of Chairman Scalise, and couldn’t help but realize that I was the only black person in the room,“ said Guillory. “I thought, how can this be? What would Frederick Douglass think about this? We need to do something about this. We need more Black conservatives in congress,” added Guillory.
Guillory’s web video now has over 800,000 views. He recently gave a speech at the DC March for Jobs, about the detrimental effects of amnesty on the Black community.

As a deputy sheriff I could see the hopelessness inflicted first by racism and then by “the cure.” I have never seen more brave people of different “shades” standing together like conservatives today. Elbert Guillory should be in the front lines on the national stage. Money is very scarce for retirees but I will save and donate when I can. Thank you, Senator and all those at Free At Last PAC.Steve Bayrd

- Jeff McDaniel August 7, 2013 at 7:46 pm ReplyKeep up the great job. We need more people like Elbert Guillory in the whitehouse. And less liberals. I’m tired of being called a racist when I just want our once great country to rebuild to what it used to be. Proud individuals who want to work, prosper and buy the things they want out of life.
Basically , personal responsibility.
I hope Elbert goes far and accomplishes his goals. We need Elbert (and others like him) to continue the good fight and keep running for public offices. Thank you for speaking up.
- Mathew C. Jackson August 7, 2013 at 9:50 pm ReplyI saw Mr..Guillory’s video and was impressed. I’ve been watching the Democrats take Blacks for granted. I’ve watched the pro-amnesty bent of the Democrats (and their chamber of commerce Republican co-conspirators) cause Black US citizens to lose jobs to illegal aliens, whom the Democrats want to turn into a new dependent-class of voters to keep them in power. I’ve watched the Democrat policies allow women to “marry the government” and further diminish the importance of positive male role models, especially in the Black community. I’ve watched the race-hustling traitors (we all know who they are) espouse a victim mentality rather than showing the value of education, positive father figures, and self-reliance. Enough is enough! I like seeing that Black conservatives are working to change this. I feel I’m not alone.

- Emery J. Simien August 9, 2013 at 2:40 am ReplyCongratulations Senator Guillory on your appointment as chairman.
- Stan Giles August 21, 2013 at 2:32 am ReplyThis man unlike the majority in Washington can speak from the hart, with truthful knowledge of history and without the use of a teleprompter and make good sense. He really nails it: that the holier than though white elite have no clue what Douglas, Lincoln, Eisenhower and Reverend King did or labored to do to bring the black people into the equal mainstream of America. Now that the left is seeing that many are shining light, on these historical ignoramuses, they are turning to the low information, less educated Latino voters for a free ride to hold on to their arrogant hold on political power. Shame on them and God bless Elbert Guillory and all others who acknowledge true freedom and recognize and champion genuine Liberty & Freedom.
