Received this e-mail from former presidential candidate, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D. IN), in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
I'm reaching out personally to you today because I know we're ready for a different kind of leader — not just in the White House, but in the Senate, too. One who will fight to expand access to affordable health care, defend Social Security, and protect our unions. In Iowa, that leader is Theresa Greenfield.
I've made it my mission to help win the era — that means fighting for progress in every state at every level. Flipping the Senate is crucial to that fight, and electing Theresa is personal to me. I spent the past year getting to know Iowans in the most rural parts of the state, in small town diners, and big cities. No matter where I went, they told me they were ready for change. Ready for someone to work for our families, not corporate special interests.
Mitch McConnell knows Iowa is the key to holding his majority. That's why Iowa is one of the first states the Senate Republicans' campaign arm invested in this year — and also why Mitch McConnell's super PAC has pledged to spend over 12 million dollars to beat Theresa.
Theresa and I believe in running a campaign the right way — without corporate PAC dollars. That means if she's going to win, this grassroots team is her first and last line of defense against these outside attacks.
Thanks for helping us win the era.
