In more than 16 months of campaigning, Theresa Greenfield has been ignoring rural Iowa, and voters are taking notice according to a veteran journalist in western Iowa. On WHO-TV’s The Insiders, Tim Seaman, of KCAU-TV in Sioux City, noted that Greenfield “hasn’t had a presence in Western Iowa.”

“She has not had a presence in western Iowa,” Seaman said.

“Even before the pandemic hit?” asked WHO-TV’s Dave Price.

“Yes, just not a presence there,” Seaman continued. “And I don’t know if that is a sense of ‘it’s such a deep red there that I’m not going to waste my time and energies there. I’m going to be where I can’ – I don’t know. But I know that’s one thing I’ve heard from a lot of people. That ‘I don’t really know this Theresa Greenfield’ and it’s partly because she has not been up there.”

“While Theresa Greenfield ignores western Iowa, folks are seeing her for who she really is: the handpicked candidate of liberal elites. Unlike Joni Ernst who visits every corner of Iowa, every year, Greenfield is hiding to avoid answering for her liberal policies that would destroy jobs, hurt small businesses, and hamstring farmers,” said Joni Ernst spokesperson Melissa Deatsch.
