IA-SEN: Des Moines Register editorial board endorses Theresa Greenfield for U.S. Senate

Theresa Greenfield is not a practiced politician. That makes her all the more appealing to represent Iowans in the U.S. Senate.

She rightly supports a path to citizenship for immigrants brought to the country as children, a requirement that Medicare negotiate what it pays for prescription drugs and closure of tax loopholes that allow large corporations to avoid paying their fair share in taxes.

During a recent meeting with the Register's editorial board, Greenfield talked about the importance of access to health care. Her other priorities include providing relief to those struggling from the pandemic, ending systemic racism, investing in community colleges, and bringing the country together.

Sen. Joni Ernst refused to meet with the Register's editorial board to answer our questions about her one term in the Senate.

That term began with a promise to make government “squeal” by cutting spending. Over the past six years, the only squeals heard were those of delight from wealthy corporations that benefited from the GOP-crafted tax cut she supported.

2. MSNBC showed the clip of Ernst completely

dodging the question she got about the break even price of soy beans after Greenfield correctly answered the same question about corn. For someone representing a farm state, Ernst's non-answer must have produced mass eye-rolling from Iowans.

4. Ernst not knowing the break even price of soybeans

is a big fucking deal.

That screw up might be the final tipping point the throws that Senate seat to Greenfield, who was able to answer her part of the question (about corn prices) perfectly.

Greenfield isn’t hurt by her own personal story of becoming a widow at age 24 with a toddler and also being pregnant with her second child.
She also has a very down to earth, regular Joe, unpretentious personality. She is very smart and doesn’t have to try to act like she knows what is going on. Unlike dumb Joni.

6. Dumb Joni, no kidding! She could've been humble about not knowing the soybean answer

but instead she tried to bluster -- certainly exposed in that few seconds what a mean-spirited know-nothing, lazy, dumb illegitimate excuse for a senator she is. As if we didn't already know that.
