October 15, 2020

Last night, while twice asked whether she would vote for a Supreme Court nominee during an election year, former Colby Interests executive Theresa Greenfield (D-Country Club Knolls) conveniently dodged the question citing technical difficulties.

“Theresa Greenfield pretended she couldn’t hear the question about confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett, because she doesn’t want Iowans to know that she opposes religious liberties, wants to restrict the Second Amendment and even supports extreme environmental rules that would hurt farmers,” said Joni Ernst spokesperson Melissa Deatsch.  “Unlike Greenfield, Joni believes in highly-qualified judicial nominees from the Midwest like Amy Coney Barrett who will not legislate from the bench.” 

BACKGROUND …

In May 2020, Greenfield endorsed Nancy Pelosi’s “signature” gun control legislation passed by the House. “You know, the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill that included that, doing those things. It is sitting on the Senate’s desk. Mitch McConnell will not bring that bill up. Joni Ernst will not demand and do her job to have that vote, that bill heard on the Senate floor and we should vote her out so that we can take this kind of bipartisan action and get started on reducing gun violence in this country.” (Theresa Greenfield, Interview With Eastside Huddle, 5/9/20 – Minute: 28:09-29:05)

In April, 2020, Greenfield said she supported partial-birth abortion and it was an “uncompromising” position. Well, I will always defend a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. That is uncompromising to me. I’m – actually frankly, everybody needs to be able to make their own health care decisions, not just women.” (Theresa Greenfield, Interview With J.D. Scholten, 4/6/20 – Minute 29:26-30:38)

In August 2020, when asked if women should be able to have an abortion in the third trimester, Greenfield said, “I’m not going to tell a doctor or any person what their best decision is.” (Interview On KXEL Radio, 8/7/20 – Minute 10:31-10:54) 

Joni Ernst is a mother, soldier and a leader who has never stopped fighting for Iowa.

Her liberal opponent is former Colby Interests real-estate executive Ms. Theresa Greenfield.  Ms. Greenfield, who lives in one of Iowa’s wealthiest zip codes, prioritized profits over people when she personally signed paperwork to remove mom and pop businesses for a corporate chain. Ms. Greenfield’s previous attempt at running for Congress ended in failure, with her campaign manager ultimately pleading guilty to election fraud.
