Theresa's Terrible Week
All those months of hiding in her windowless basement are catching up to her, and Iowans now know they can’t trust Theresa.
With less than 90 days until the General Election, things aren’t looking great for Theresa Greenfield. Let’s recap:
First, Republicans leaped ahead in voter registration: After a competitive caucus and statewide Senate primary, Democrat voter registration outpaced Republicans by only about 14,000 (that number was 80,000+ after the ‘08 caucuses). But since March of this year, the GOP has completely erased their gains -- and now we’re up by almost 3,000.
Then, Greenfield’s attempts to cover-up her failed real estate record were exposed across the state: Greenfield was caught scrubbing information from her biography relating to her failed time as CEO of Rottlund Homes and President of Colby Interests. The Republican Party went on the road -- from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River -- to expose this blatant attempt to cover up her shady record.
Next, Greenfield’s reeling campaign released an ad with a “small business owner” who is really a longtime liberal and former elected Democrat official: The concerns over Greenfield’s failed business record hit home, and it sent her team scrambling. They recruited a well-known liberal to rush to her defense -- a clear indictment of her flailing campaign.
Finally, after learning more about the real Theresa Greenfield, Iowans don’t like what they’re seeing: Senator Ernst leads Theresa Greenfield by 3 points in a new Monmouth Poll. Even though she is doing everything she can to cover it up with wishy-washy claims and campaign ads, her past is catching up to her.
There’s no doubt about it: This has been a no good, very bad week for Theresa Greenfield. All those months of hiding in her windowless basement are catching up to her, and Iowans now know they can’t trust Theresa.
