Guthrie Supports President Obama's Plans To Stop ISIL


Second district Republican Congressman Brett Guthrie calls the members of ISIL "evil people that need to be stopped.

Speaking in Bowling Green, Guthrie said he supports Obama's actions fighting ISIL in Syria, especially bringing in other countries to join the fight. He said he wants to see "their boots on the ground, not our boots on the ground."

The Bowling Green Republican held a late afternoon Town Hall meeting at WKU's Carroll Knicely Center Wednesday; he'll hold one more next week in Edmonson County.

Guthrie said he's noticed a change in the comments and the feelings he's been getting from constituents as he travels throughout his district. He said one woman told him what's going on now in the Middle East actually scares her.
