DES MOINES, Iowa -- Today, Sen. Joni Ernst received an endorsement from the largest small business organization in the country, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

Sen. Ernst has been a staunch advocate for small businesses in the Senate. She recently secured additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, in the face of obstruction from Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats, to help small businesses struggling due to the pandemic.

Shady Des Moines real estate executive Theresa Greenfield was rightfully snubbed of this endorsement -- a stunning indictment of her disastrous record as CEO of Rottlund Homes and President of Colby Interests:

  • Rottlund Homes was forced to close under Greenfield’s leadership after they were sued repeatedly and failed to pay their bills
  • Recently, it was revealed that Rottlund Homes of Iowa was sued by Northwest Bank after they failed to pay almost $50,000 in rent -- eventually resulting their eviction
  • After running Rottlund into the ground, Greenfield became President of Colby Interests where she displaced several small businesses in Windsor Heights, personally signing the notices that kicked these mom-and-pop stores to the curb

  • Since these notices came to light, Greenfield has ignored questions from Iowa small business owners and still hasn’t provided answers after over 10 weeks

  • Instead, she has remained silent -- even after it was revealed she deleted references to these two companies from her campaign website

“Despite portraying herself as a successful ‘small businesswoman,’ Iowans see right through Theresa Greenfield's rhetoric for who she really is: a shady real estate executive with an abysmal record,” said Aaron Britt, Communications Director for the Republican Party of Iowa. “There’s only one candidate in this race that Iowa small business owners can trust to have their backs, and that’s Joni Ernst.”
