Theresa continues to emerge as unity candidate to take on Senator Ernst, earning support from Iowa leaders, labor organizations, and major presidential candidates from the Iowa Caucuses
Today, businesswoman Theresa Greenfield’s U.S. Senate campaign released a new ad, “Support,” showcasing Theresa’s broad support and grassroots strength in Iowa’s Senate race – including endorsements from dozens of Iowa leaders, more than twenty local labor organizations representing tens of thousands of Iowa workers, and multiple major presidential candidates.
Watch “Support” here:
Theresa has built the strongest grassroots team to take on Senator Joni Ernst and flip Iowa’s U.S. Senate seat. She has earned endorsements from two dozen local labor unions and organizations representing more than 70,000 Iowa workers, including the early endorsement of the Iowa AFL-CIO. She’s also won endorsements from dozens of Iowa leaders who know she’ll fight to put hardworking Iowans first in Washington – including Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer and Congressman Dave Loebsack, State Senate Minority Leader Janet Petersen, former Lieutenant Governor Sally Pederson, and former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack – and earned the support of Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
She’s also been endorsed by grassroots organizations like End Citizens United, the League of Conservation Voters and EMILY’s List.
Theresa has received nearly 19,000 contributions from Iowans in all 99 counties, and in March qualified for the ballot with more than 20,000 signatures representing voters in every county. Recent public polling shows Theresa leading the primary field by more than 30 points, and running neck-and-neck with Senator Ernst – making clear why she’s the strongest candidate to fight for Iowa’s working families in the U.S. Senate.
“There’s too much at stake in this election to put off the critical work of unifying Iowa’s working families to defeat Senator Ernst,” said Greenfield for Iowa spokesperson Izzi Levy. “Over the past year, Theresa has worked day and night to build the strongest grassroots team spanning all of Iowa’s 99 counties, including dozens of local labor organizations and leaders across the state. Theresa continues to earn the trust of hardworking Iowans because they know that she is ready to go toe-to-toe with Senator Ernst and that she will always put Iowa first.”

Because she has what it takes to defeat Joni Ernst and hold Trump accountable.
The Register praised Greenfield as the one who “understands the struggles of working Iowans.”
Iowa Democratic leaders Abby Finkenauer, Dave Loebsack, and Christie Vilsack endorse Greenfield because she’ll fight for what’s right.
In addition to postponing in-person events, the Greenfield for Iowa campaign is taking precautions by having all staff work remotely and encouraging social distancing practices at all times. The campaign also recently launched a new webpage to help Iowans vote by mail so that all Iowans can participate safely in the upcoming election.
