When you think of Chris Grant, think Big. Big Guy. (Offensive Tackle big).
Big Laugh. (A hearty guffaw, if you will)
Big Heart. (A teddy bear outside of politics).
Big Ideas. (Consulting for first member of Congress to endorse Trump, helping preserve the GOP Senate Majority in heavily democratic New York State, defeating an incumbent member in most expensive primary in 2016).
Big Wins. (Electing Republicans in historically democratic areas; led 1 of only 4 campaigns nationally to defeat Democratic incumbent in Obama wave year of 2012).
The only big thing missing for Chris? A Buffalo Bills Super Bowl win.
Grant is a seasoned and successful consultant with more than 15 years of experience winning campaigns for Republican candidates in deep blue territory at the local, state and national level.
Most recently, Grant served as a vice president for one of the biggest GOP consulting firms in the country, overseeing gubernatorial, senatorial and congressional races in every region of the country.
Grant scored his first major win in 2007 for now- Representative Chris Collins (NY-27) when he engineered his upset victory for County Executive of Erie County – the largest county in upstate New York, electing a Republican in a county with a 2-1 Democratic majority. There he served for four years as Chief of Staff and oversaw the policy, legislative, communication offices and was responsible for directing several other county agencies and departments.
He brings an extensive background in local, state, and federal policy and political experience to clients at every stage.
In 2012, Grant began his own consulting company and engineered one of only four GOP challenger victories over Democrat incumbents in the country in an Obama-wave year, in one of the most expensive contests in the country.
After overseeing the election of Rep. Chris Collins in 2012, Grant reprised his role as Chief of Staff, serving in that capacity until the end of 2015. Grant oversaw Congressman Collins’ district and Washington, DC offices. Grant spearheaded and engineered Collins’ successful selection to the prestigious House Energy and Commerce Committee - the first New York Republican in 20 years to achieve that honor.
Grant has served as a general consultant and media consultant on successful races at the congressional, state and local levels.
In 2017, Grant returned to his own consulting firm, which focuses on political, corporate and federal affairs.
Grant earned his bachelor’s degree from Canisius College and his law degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo and is admitted to the New York State Bar.
He serves on the Board of Directors for the University at Buffalo Law School Alumni Association and has served as an adjunct professor of constitutional history at Canisius College. He and his wife Andrea split time between Washington, DC and Buffalo, NY.
