As Election Day nears, rising Republican star Elbert Guillory (R, LA) and the Free At Last PAC launched a major effort to warn voters in Arkansas, Georgia, and Louisiana about the detrimental effect liberal policies are having on the nation’s African American community.
In a series of TV ad buys totaling upwards to $330,000 and appearing on both broadcast and cable TV, Guillory’s Free At Last PAC aired ads during major sporting events over the weekend before Election Day. Ads were aired in all three states including his home state of Louisiana where Guillory serves as a State Senator.
In Arkansas where Democrat incumbent Mark Pryor is seeking a third term in the Senate, the Free At Last PAC ad was featured during the nail-biting Mississippi State/Arkansas game. Senator Pryor’s father held the same seat years before him and Guillory calls for the “Pryor dynasty” to come to an end in the Natural State.
Guillory criticizes a similar situation in Georgia where Democrat Michelle Nunn is running for Senate in a state where her father served as Senator for a generation. Guillory states in the ad that “Georgia will have ‘Nunn'” of Michelle Nunn. The ad made a big splash across the Peach State when it aired during the Florida-Georgia game on Saturday.
Finally, in his home state of Louisiana, Guillory says that it is time for Democrat Mary Landrieu’s run to come to an end. Landrieu first ran for Senate in 1996, but, as Guillory points out, little has changed in Louisiana’s black communities in all those 18 years. The Free At Last PAC ad ran in the Lafayette, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans markets during the Thursday Night Football Saints-Panthers game.
Free At Last PAC strives to promote black conservative candidates and works to introduce conservative candidates into the black communities.
“Our communities are just as poor as they have always been. Our schools continue to fail children. Our prisons are filled with young black men who should be at home being fathers,” Guillory says on the group’s website.
