Greenfield’s blockbuster haul not just a quarterly fundraising record but more than any U.S. Senate candidate in Iowa has ever raised in an entire election cycle
Historic grassroots support and small-dollar enthusiasm includes tens of thousands of contributions from Iowans in all 99 counties
Today, the Greenfield Campaign is announcing it raised a record-shattering $28.7 million in Q3 of 2020, including tens of thousands of grassroots contributions from Iowans in all 99 counties.
The record-breaking haul amounts to more than four times what Senator Joni Ernst raised in the third quarter of her 2014 campaign, more than double what Ernst raised in the entire 2014 cycle, and more than any U.S. Senate candidate in Iowa has ever raised in an entire election cycle. 95 percent of the campaign’s contributions this quarter were $100 or less, and this unprecedented total does not include one dime of corporate PAC donations.
“This record-shattering haul is more proof that as Iowans begin early voting, they’re ready for change in the U.S. Senate,” said Izzi Levy, Greenfield for Iowa spokesperson. “While Senator Ernst struggles to defend her failed record of selling out Iowans for her corporate PAC donors, Theresa’s grassroots momentum continues to grow – all without accepting a single dime from corporate PACs. From now through November 3, Theresa is going to continue competing for every last vote in every corner of the state by listening to Iowans and focusing on the issues that matter most, whether it’s expanding access to affordable health care, protecting Social Security, creating more good-paying jobs, or getting us through this pandemic.”
Theresa’s historic fundraising is the latest sign of her unmistakable momentum. It comes just two weeks after the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll showed Theresa “holding her own” in Iowa’s U.S. Senate race and maintaining her narrow lead over Senator Joni Ernst. Additionally, and every nonpartisan election analyst has named this race a toss-up.
