WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory as a featured speaker at the 2013 regional Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, September 28, 2013.

Click here to watch Senator Guillory’s viral video, with almost one million hits, entitled “Why I am a Republican” where he explained the reasons for his switch in party affiliation.

“Senator Elbert Guillory became an internet sensation after bravely voicing his disapproval of the progressive agenda and their policies that consequently impair success in the United States,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “I look forward to welcoming Senator Guillory to St. Louis as a first-time speaker at CPAC and hearing his remarks about his vision for the future of America.”

Sen. Guillory was first elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives in 2007 as a Democrat. From there he was elected to the Louisiana State Senate in 2009, and changed his party affiliation to Republican in 2013. Since his party change, Sen. Guillory became the first Black Republican to serve in the Louisiana State Senate since Reconstruction.

CPAC St. Louis will be held Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at the St. Charles Convention Center. It will provide a day of blockbuster speeches, policy discussions and networking opportunities—all celebrating the shared principles of smaller government, a strong national defense and traditional values. At regional CPACs, ACU highlights conservative leaders from the area and energizes and trains grassroots activists.
