ICYMI: Greenfield Ignores Half the State, Gets Caught Running ‘Grassroots’ Campaign from the Coasts
Not only has she flippantly ignored half of Iowa, but she’s also been running her so-called “grassroots” campaign from the coasts
Last week, it was revealed that failed real estate executive Theresa Greenfield has yet to visit nearly half of the counties in Iowa -- despite having launched her campaign 15 months ago.
Not only has she flippantly ignored half of Iowa, but she’s also been running her so-called “grassroots” campaign from the coasts -- using special interest groups in California, New York, and Washington, D.C. for her get-out-the-vote efforts.
With her history blowing off large swaths of this state, it’s no wonder Greenfield has been relying on her far-left coastal allies to help her flailing campaign. She has prioritized Chuck Schumer and his “windowless basement” strategy -- hiding, raising money from corporate lobbyists, CEOs, and executives, and relying on disingenuous TV ads rather than having face-to-face conversations with Iowans.

“While Greenfield has repeatedly touted her campaign as an Iowa ‘grassroots’ operation, photos reveal that her get-out-the-vote efforts are being conducted from out of state, including places like California, New York, and Washington, D.C.
“For the past several weeks, Iowans have been receiving hand-written letters asking them to vote for Greenfield. While the letters appear authentic and grassroots-driven, photos show they are postmarked from out of state. Also, social media posts reveal they are part of an organized, out-of-state effort by special interest groups.
“For example, one such individual appears to be working for a special interests group based out of Indiana, according to information on her Twitter page:
“The organization this individual references, ‘Flip the West,’ is based in California:
“This is not the first time Greenfield has relied on support from out-of-state special interests organizations for her get-out-the-vote efforts. Iowa Field Report has learned that even before the Democratic Party primary, Greenfield’s campaign was relying on California phone bankers.”
