SMP Statement on Iowa Senate Primary Results

Washington, DC – Tonight, Senate Majority PAC President J.B. Poersch released the following statement on the results of the Iowa Senate primary:

“Theresa Greenfield’s decisive victory illustrates that her powerful personal story and message of fighting to protect health care and Social Security resonates deeply with Iowans across the state, making her the perfect foil for Joni Ernst.

“Ernst promised to go to Washington and make em’ squeal and instead she has sold out to her special interest donors. The damage back home is clear as Ernst has taken a double-digit hit to her approval rating as McConnell and his allies commit its second-largest investment in Iowa to prop her up.

“We’ve known that Ernst is vulnerable and that Iowa is in play, and we’re proud to have made strategic investments in TV, digital, and radio to tell Greenfield’s story before the onslaught of Republican attacks begin. By investing early, we laid the groundwork to flip a competitive seat and send Joni Ernst packing in November.”
