Cedar Rapids Gazette Editorial Board Endorses Greenfield: “It’s time for a new voice in the Senate, that voice is Theresa Greenfield.”

Greenfield Secures Major Endorsement From One Of Iowa’s Largest Newspapers, Which Endorsed Senator Grassley in 2016 

The Cedar Rapids Gazette’s Editorial Board today announced their endorsement of businesswoman Theresa Greenfield for U.S. Senate in Iowa, citing Theresa’s commitment to “rebuild the social safety net and strengthen the Affordable Care Act.” 

The endorsement also highlights Theresa’s ability to “work in a bipartisan manner to aid Iowans,” and “end an era of partisan rancor” to put Iowans first. While the Cedar Rapids Gazette endorsed Senator Chuck Grassley in 2016, Senator Ernst declined to meet with them, making the decision to “duck a discussion of policy and the future of our state.” 

The Editorial Board further criticized Ernst, writing: “Iowans deserve politicians who are not afraid of scrutiny.” 

Read the highlights from the Gazette’s major endorsement

  • Theresa Greenfield, who is challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, is a centrist candidate, running to rebuild the social safety net and strengthen the Affordable Care Act. 
  • Greenfield offers Iowans a chance to end an era of partisan rancor, which has cost the lives of over 1,300 Iowans and over 200,000 Americans in the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • During Ernst’s time in the Senate, we’ve seen continued dysfunctional government, problems ignored and very little of the change, or squealing, Ernst promised. 
  • It’s time for a new voice in the Senate, that voice is Theresa Greenfield.
