Theresa Greenfield (born October 20, 1963 (age 57)) (pronounced "Teresa", not "Theresa")[1] is a liberal Democrat "small business owner" (see below) who unsuccessfully ran for United States Senate from Iowa in the 2020 elections to unseat conservative Republican incumbent Joni Ernst.

A video released in mid-October 2020 showed that Greenfield secretly supports BLM,[2] an extremist group that is increasingly unpopular in Iowa following riots in cities such as Des Moines.

Early life/education

Greenfield was born in Bricelyn, Minnesota to parents who operated a family farm with four other siblings. She attended Iowa Lakes Community College in addition to Iowa State University, then attended and graduated with a bachelor's degree from Minnesota State University.

2020 Senate bid

Greenfield announced in early June 2019 her run for Senate after dropping out of a congressional race.[3] She won her party's primary with a plurality of 48% of the votes cast to face Sen. Ernst in the general election.[4]

She has refused to provide a direct answer on whether illegal border crossings to the United States should be decriminalized or not.[5]

Greenfield was backed by ActBlue,[6] a left-wing dark money group.

Greenfield announced in mid-October 2020 that she would oppose court packing.[7]

She has faced a campaign finance violation complaint filed to the FEC.[8]

Flip-flopping/liberal hypocrisy

See main article: Liberal hypocrisy

A liberal, Greenfield unsurprisingly has flip-flopped and displayed hypocrisy; she claimed to reject taking donations from corporate PACs,[9] yet did exactly that via taking them indirectly and called criticism from a primary opponent "Republican talking points".[10] An ethics complaint was also filed against her.[11] However, PolitiFact, commonly referred to as "PolitiFake" for its liberal bias, stepped in to cover for Greenfield by ignoring obvious facts.[12]

Greenfield, despite having campaigned as a champion for workers and business owners, once evicted local small businesses to make room for Aldi.[13] Small business owners expressed concerns over her tenure as a real estate executive,[14] and Greenfield soon suspiciously erased mentions of her business record from her campaign record,[15] justifying such with a poor excuse.[16] In addition, a "small business owner" Greenfield used to tout her campaign turned out to be a liberal Democrat activist previously elected as a politician.[17]

Debates

At a Senate debate between Ernst and Greenfield, the incumbent senator strongly called out the latter over poor business practices.[18][19]

General election results

Despite polling that suggested a tossup, Greenfield ultimately lost to Sen. Ernst by 6.6 percentage points.[20]
