Granata for President Announcement Rally

Chicago, Illinois


Thank you! Thank you all so much for joining me here. I am more grateful than any of you know for all of the opportunities that this great state and this great city have awarded me. As many of you know, I grew up on the south side of Chicago and attended Harper High School where I had a reputation for always speaking my mind... even when I knew I'd take a lot of heat for doing so. I was fortunate enough to graduate from college and return home to the south side to open up the first location of my business. Before moving to the suburbs, I was able to create and maintain great working relationships with many of you here tonight and I will never forget how much that means to me. 

I was able to see first hand what worked... and what didn't work when it came to public policy. In many cases, I was frustrated with overbearing government regulations that kept me from doing what I needed to do so that I could provide my service to the community. All I wanted to do was put out a good product and hire decent hard working people to help me do so. Sometimes we had like minded people on our sides, and sometimes we didn't. I knew that the only way that I'd be able to really make  a lasting impression was to get involved in the decision making process. I became a United States Senator and I've done just that for the people of this state for many years and its been the honor of a lifetime.

During my time in the US Senate, I've fought to get rid of job killing regulations, strengthen our education system, strengthen our military, and bring integrity to public service. I've fought to protect our liberties guaranteed to us in the constitution. I've fought for the second amendment and the protection and sanctity of life. I've firmly stood against the dangerous socialist policies of many on the left. I've successfully represented a blue state from a conservative platform. I've been able to do that because conservatives believe in prosperity and opportunity for all... and that's a message that isn't assigned a label or a political party. 

We are at a time in our nation's history in which the working people of America risk being put on the back burner and overlooked in favor of illegal immigrants and criminals. Many of those on the left see no problem with compromising the freedom of our own American citizens to provide resources and aid to those who break our national immigration laws. It is my firm belief that until the rightful citizens of this country are working, educated, housed, and fed that there is absolutely no resource that should be committed to those who are here illegally. 

I believe that if we are dedicated to America first.... America will succeed.... That is why today I announce my candidacy for president of the United States of America. Under my administration Americans will be put back to work. They'll have their constitutional rights protected. They'll be protected by a strong national defense. Under my administration they'll be protected from the destructive policies of the left who move closer and closer to adopting a national socialist platform every day. Under my administration the people of this great nation will be able to breathe a sigh of relief. 

I am excited to embark on this journey with you and encourage you to join me as we take this campaign on the road. 

God bless all of you. Thank you!
