Received this e-mail yesterday from U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D. WA) in support of Theresa Greenfield’s (D. IA) U.S. Senate campaign:
We just got some incredible news about Theresa Greenfield’s campaign in Iowa:
The Iowa Poll, the gold standard poll in Iowa, has Theresa up by THREE to GOP Senator Joni Ernst. This is going to be the race of the cycle — one of the closest in the country.
This news follows three other recent polls that show this race is neck-and-neck.
Iowa is one of four seats we need to take back the Senate from the GOP this November — and with our support, Democrat Theresa Greenfield can get the job done and flip this must-win seat.
Theresa is ready to be the leader that Iowans and people across the country need. In the Senate, she'll fight to expand access to affordable health care, protect Social Security, and create good-paying jobs in Iowa and across the country. I need her fighting by my side in the Senate.
But national Republicans and Mitch McConnell have made it clear that Iowa is one of their top targets this year. McConnell's super PAC pledged to spend over $12 million to defeat Theresa — their second largest investment in the country! We need to have Theresa’s back in this fight.
