Theresa Greenfield

U.S. Senate hopeful Theresa Greenfield speaks with possible supporters at the Coffee Attic in Iowa Falls on Oct. 22.

Democratic Senate candidate Theresa Greenfield didn't mince words about potential opponent Sen. Joni Ernst during a stop at the Coffee Attic in Iowa Falls last week.

"I've had two reporters ask me that very question about being a socialist," she said to a local Democrat during the forum. "I (told them) Joni's a socialist. I run a small business. I provide jobs. I keep the lights on and every other Thursday, with pride, I sign paychecks. Joni votes for tax bills that give handouts to billionaires. That's socialism."
