Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D. HI) in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
Folks, we need to flip four seats to take back the Senate this year, and the path to victory runs right through Iowa.
Theresa Greenfield is running in Iowa’s Senate race against one of Mitch McConnell’s strongest allies, Senator Joni Ernst, and polls show them neck-and-neck.
I've had the chance to meet Theresa and am ready to get to work with her as my colleague. I have seen her connect with those she will represent because she listens and shares the same desire I do to give voice to those who are so often voiceless. Her sincerity and work ethic will make her a wonderful representative for the people of Iowa and welcome addition to the Senate.
Mitch McConnell and national Republicans have made this race a top priority. McConnell's super PAC has even pledged to spend over $12 million to defeat Theresa — their second largest investment in the country.
I am asking for you to help Theresa defeat Mitch McConnell’s lackey, because we can’t flip the Senate without winning in Iowa. Split a contribution of $10 or more right now between Theresa’s campaign and my work to flip the Senate.
Listen, Senator Ernst’s approval rating dropped ten points in the last year — and her lead in this race is evaporating.
The people of Iowa are sick of Mitch McConnell and his lackey, Joni Ernst. Theresa is committed to protecting Social Security, expanding affordable healthcare, creating good-paying jobs, and making life easier for Iowa families.
I have been outspoken on issues of justice and progressive policies to improve the lives of all Americans. This November, everything hangs in the balance! We need Theresa in the Senate and I look forward to working with her as my colleague to make sure we push forward because battles do not stay won.
