Randy Piedrahita Switch to GOP Recognized at Luncheon

Last year before the November Presidential election, former Counsel for the Democratic Party and Executive Committee Member Randy Piedrahita quietly switched his voter registration to Republican. On June 11, 2013, at the Ronald Reagan Newsmaker Luncheon, Randy and two other former Democratic officials were formally welcomed into the GOP by East Baton Rouge Parish Republican Chairman Woody Jenkins and State GOP Chairman Roger Villere. Randy briefly spoke to thank the Republicans for their warm welcome and to note that, as the son of legal immigrants and a Lifetime NRA member, he was aligned with them on many issues ranging from gun control and entitlement abuse to fiscal reform and encouraging self versus governmental reliance. Randy fielded questions and discussed constitutional and historical roots of gun rights, and is looking forward to working with Republicans to better this State and these United States.
