An Iowan who worked through tough times on the family farm
Theresa Greenfield grew up on her family farm and at 16, began helping with the family crop-dusting business. When the farm crisis of the 1980s hit hard, Theresa buckled down to help keep her family afloat and worked to put herself through school. Later as a young mom, when she and her husband were expecting their second child, he was killed on-the-job as a union electrician. She raised her two boys as a single mom, and began a successful career in business.
An outsider and champion of reform determined to change how Washington works
In her announcement, Greenfield decried the favors that politicians do for the super wealthy and well-connected special interests, and called for a ban on corporate PAC money and an end to special interest loopholes and tax breaks. Theresa knows that big money and corporate special interests have too much power in Washington, and she has committed to rejecting corporate PAC money during her campaign. Theresa will fight for transparency and to make sure our elected leaders finally work for the people they are supposed to represent.
A critical opportunity to flip a seat and take back the Senate
Joni Ernst and Mitch McConnell are part of the corrupt Washington establishment blocking progress on the issues that matter most to the people of Iowa. This race is a critical battleground for the Senate majority, and Theresa Greenfield is a key part of our efforts to retake the Senate and deliver true reform for the American people. As Big Money Republican policies leave Iowa communities behind, Theresa Greenfield is the candidate who will fight for everyday Iowans and put people’s needs first in Congress.
