Greenfield Campaign Statement on Theresa’s Impressive Performance in WHO 13 Debate

Theresa’s third debate win this week highlights how she’s ready to go toe-to-toe with Ernst, fight for Iowa’s working families in the U.S. Senate

Theresa Greenfield for Iowa campaign manager Jordanna Zeigler released the following statement on Theresa’s performance in today’s U.S. Senate debate hosted by WHO 13, her third winning debate performance this week:

“In today’s debate, Theresa Greenfield once again proved that she is the only candidate with the grassroots support and momentum to unify Iowans and defeat Senator Joni Ernst. In all three debates this week, Theresa has made clear that she is ready to fight for Iowa’s hardworking families in the U.S. Senate – ending corruption and standing up to corporate special interests, expanding access to quality, affordable health care, and investing in more opportunities for Iowans in every corner of the state. 

“Theresa’s impressive performance this afternoon shows why she has the strongest statewide grassroots team, with robust support from Iowans in all 99 counties, including the endorsement of dozens of Iowa leaders and 24 labor unions and organizations who know she will be a powerful voice for all Iowans in the Senate.”

Theresa continues to build grassroots momentum in the final weeks of Iowa’s U.S. Senate primary. In addition to dozens of endorsements from leaders in every corner of the state and local labor unions and organizations representing tens of thousands of workers, the campaign raised a record-shattering $1.5 million in the pre-primary filing period – with an average online contribution of less than $18 and thousands of contributions from Iowans in all 99 counties – further proof that she is the best candidate to unify Iowans and flip this seat.

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.
