DES MOINES, Iowa – The Republican Party of Iowa released a video touting a recent fact check confirming that a National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) attacking Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Theresa Greenfield’s real estate record.
A fact check by KCRG TV 9, the ABC affiliate in Cedar Rapids found that the NRSC ad’s claims about Greenfield were true, but lacked context.
Watch the NRSC ad below:
KCRG noted that Rottlund Homes, where Greenfield served as the CEO of their Iowa division, went bankrupt and faced lawsuits claiming that the business owed $29 million, but that it was during a recession. They also stated that the company had been sued 60 times since 1995, but she did not join the company until 2005. Rottlund Homes in Iowa was sued ten times while she served as the division CEO.

Iowa GOP notes that while Greenfield touts her record as a small business owner”in reality, she was a real estate executive with a disastrous record.”
“Iowans are beginning to see the real Theresa Greenfield, and it’s a rude awakening,” said Aaron Britt, Communications Director for the Republican Party of Iowa. “The truth is, Greenfield’s company was repeatedly sued and didn’t pay its bills. Iowans value hard work, responsibility, and accountability, but Greenfield’s dismal record proves she puts her own interests above Iowans. She couldn’t even successfully run her’ small business;’ she certainly can’t be trusted to serve Iowans in the U.S. Senate.”
