Senators Are Split

Kentucky Senator’s Mitch McConnell and Jim Bunning are also split over the president’s proposed plan.

McConnell said he supports the president and increasing American troops gives us a chance at victory. McConnell also said a stable Iraqi government is an ally in the war on terror.

Senator Bunning said he doesn’t think more troops are necessary but Bunning emphasizes that he has no details about Bush’s new Iraq strategy other than the troop surge.
