State Senator Elbert is a Democrat turned Republican running for Lieutenant Governor. He explained his 2013 party switch by comparing the Democratic Party to slavery and a plantation.

Responding to criticism of that commercial, Guillory doubled down and released a new ad in which he drops the N-bomb seven times.
In the spot Guilllory says that the term has several different meanings including, “man,” “affection,” “derision’” and “tradition.” To illustrate each of these interpretations, Guillory stages sketches, even donning a wig for the camera at one point.
The candidate concludes by calling for a dialogue and then proceeds to rattle off a list of racial and ethnic slurs, “WOP, kike, spic, raghead, slant, gook.” Oddly, he concludes the roster with the phrase “redskin” and then provides emphasis to that term alone, stressing, “yes, redskin.”
