Indian-American Republican leader wins hearts

25 year old Ranjit Ricky Gill had made an impressive speech winning the hears of several members while being a magnet for attention to everyone at the party's convention that is being held in Tampa, Florida. He spoke about several policy issues.

Opening his speech formally, he said, "Good afternoon. My name is Ricky Gill, and I am humbled to stand before you as a Republican nominee for Congress and a proud son of California's San Joaquin Valley," he managed to connect with the members present at the convention.

Ricky is contesting for the House of Representatives from California seat.

Further introducing himself he spoke, "My parents immigrated to the valley from India and Africa with only their love for each other, a strong work ethic and the enduring desire to pursue their American dream. He added that everyone in the Valley worked hard and that he was proud to live there.

Speaking to several thousands of people in the hall, filled with clamorous applauds following every sentence, Ranjit said that the faulty policies in the US were the cause of suffering for many people. Debilitating threats of unemployment and foreclosures daunt even Stockton, the largest city.

He mentioned that it had forced young students to dropout and work hard in the family so they could ensure that they can survive the wave of unemployment.

Everyone felt adrenaline rushing when Ranjit said "The valley is a cautionary tale of failed policies, not false ambitions. No one in this country dreams of dependency. No one hopes for mediocrity. We are ready again to seize the measure of our ambitions not because the government says we can but because we believe we can."

He said there was a pressing need for the new generation of leadership to pave a path with policies that would create more jobs rather than "red tape" them. He added that there was the need to help smaller businesses succeed and rise to limelight.

Political analysts opine that Gill getting a chance to speak at this young age indicates hid bright future in the Republican Party.

Leadership of the Republican Party including former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and South Carolina Governor Nicki Halley have all endorsed Gill.

New York Times listed him as "Democratic toss up", indicating that the seat now held by the Democratic party is not safe for  incumbent Jerry McNerney.
