Former Sen. Elbert Guillory is one of eight candidates running for Louisiana’s Fourth Congressional District.

Guillory--originally elected as a Democrat, now running as a Republican--joined Ken Romero and Dr. John Sutherlin on Go Acadiana Friday to discuss his Congressional bid.

"People are tired of the way government has behaved with them...pushing them to the back burner," Guillory said.

Guillory said he is "ready to go to Washington" to be a change agent for the citizens of Louisiana.

Guillory said his main concerns include federal spending, education and immigration.
