Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D. IN), in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
Theresa Greenfield (D. IA)
When I talk about winning the era, I don’t just mean the White House. I mean winning up and down the ballot to elect strong Democratic leaders who will fight to expand access to affordable health care, defend Social Security, and protect our unions. Flipping the Senate by electing Theresa Greenfield is crucial to that fight.
If we want to take back the Senate, we need to win in Iowa, and this race is neck-and-neck. A new poll shows Theresa trailing Republican Senator Joni Ernst by just three points — that’s within the margin of error. We need all hands on deck right now if we’re going to take this toss-up to a win and take back the Senate.
Flipping Iowa’s Senate seat is a fight that’s personal to me. After getting to know Iowans in every part of the state from small towns to big cities, it’s clear that Iowans are ready for change.
But Mitch McConnell and national Republicans are pouring tens of millions of dollars into this race to defeat Theresa because they know this grassroots team has what it takes to flip this seat. They’ll do — and spend — whatever it takes to win. Theresa needs supporters like you to step up today and help her fight back.
Let’s win the era,
