Greenfield, a Des Moines businesswoman, is one of five Democrats seeking the party’s nomination in the state’s U.S. Senate race. Joni Ernst is the first-term Republican incumbent.
Greenfield’s campaign said 94 percent of the donations were for $100 or less, and that she received donations from nearly 3,000 Iowans in all 99 counties. Her campaign account finished the year with $2.1 million on hand, the campaign said.
“We’re thankful for the growing number of grassroots supporters who are helping us create the momentum we need to flip this Senate seat,” Greenfield said in a statement.
