RPI Statement on Greenfield’s Senate Candidacy

DES MOINES — Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann issued the following statement regarding Theresa Greenfield’s challenge to Senator Ernst:

“In a primary filled with lackluster candidates, Theresa Greenfield is the Democrats’ latest lame attempt to find an ill-advised candidate to challenge Senator Ernst. Greenfield wants to join the likes of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris in the Senate, where she would fit right in with their tax-hiking agenda of government-run health care and the Green New Deal.

“From the battlefields of Iraq to the U.S. Senate, no one has fought harder for Iowans than Joni Ernst. She has criss-crossed the state, listening to Iowans and taking their concerns to Washington. Sen. Ernst has fought for the middle-class and stood up to elites and special interests. Iowans support Ernst and her record of results, not a failed candidate who would be nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democrats’ socialist agenda.”
