GRIMES-IRAQ
Kentucky Senate candidate says US should not send troops back to Iraq

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 13, 2014 4:52 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes says she would not support sending U.S. troops back to Iraq.

Islamic militants once linked to al-Qaida have taken Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, and have vowed to advance on Baghdad. In a statement released Friday to The Associated Press, Grimes called the situation very dangerous and concerning. But she said ultimately the fight is up to the people of Iraq. Grimes said the United States should play a supportive role by providing useful intelligence.

Grimes is challenging Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in one of the country's most closely watched Senate races. Democrats are trying to keep control of the Senate in the midterm elections. Republicans need to pick up six seats to take a majority and control both houses of Congress.
