KENTUCKY SENATE-IRAQ
McConnell urges assistance to Iraqi government; Grimes opposes sending troops to Iraq

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 13, 2014 7:53 PM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is urging President Barack Obama to assist Iraq's beleaguered government to repel Islamic militants.

The Kentucky Republican warned Friday that failing to do so jeopardizes gains made by U.S. soldiers during the long war in Iraq.

McConnell did not specify what assistance the U.S. should provide.

Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is challenging McConnell in the November election, said she would not support sending U.S. troops back to Iraq. Grimes said the United States should play a supportive role by providing useful intelligence.

The new fighting in Iraq brought foreign policy to the forefront of their Senate race, among the most closely watched in the country.

Islamic militants once linked to al-Qaida have taken Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, and have vowed to advance on Baghdad.
