“People like Grijalva, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC are trying to dismantle our Constitution, and by God I just won’t sit there and let it happen.”
Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck, whose son Grant was murdered by an illegal alien, is running for Congress as a Republican in Arizona’s Third Congressional District in 2020 against incumbent Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva.
“What’s the old saying, go big or go home?,” Ronnebeck said, making his official campaign announcement to The Epoch Times. Ronnebeck has launched his campaign website, SteveRonnebeck.com.
“It’s going to be a complete grassroots campaign. I’m going to be spending a lot of time in CD-3. I do not live in CD-3 as of yet, but Raul Grijalva’s district has 16 percent of the border in Arizona and it is probably the worst 16 percent on the Arizona border and probably the second-worst district along the southern border. It includes the Yuma sector,” Ronnebeck said, noting that he can run in the Third District by virtue of the fact that he lives in the state of Arizona.
Ronnebeck said we are losing American citizens every day at the hands of illegal aliens, and border security will be the paramount issue of his campaign.
Ronnebeck’s son Grant was killed at age 21 when an illegal immigrant shot him “point blank” in the face while Grant was working the overnight shift at a convenience store.
“Grant did everything right. He handed him the pack of cigarettes,” Ronnebeck says of the 2015 murder, which galvanized Ronnebeck to become a political activist. “Grant paid the ultimate price for our failure on illegal immigration.”
