Iraq War Sore Spot in Sununu's NH Office

April 5, 2007

Concord, NH - The New Hampshire State House of Representatives approved an Iraq resolution that supporters want U.S. New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu to acknowledge. Sununu has been feeling that pressure since supporting President Bush's planned "troop surge." State Rep. Eleanor Kjellman is the parent of an Iraq war veteran, and comes from a military family. She says the support for the troops and the call for an orderly withdrawal from Iraq has to be noted.

"Our House of Representatives, in truly representing the people of his state, have made a real clear statement -- 'this is what we think.'"

The New Hampshire resolution also calls for working with countries around Iraq as part of a peace solution, as well as more funding to care for injured soldiers when they return. Sununu says Iraq is a difficult issue for everybody, and his goal is to do what he can to help get the policy right.

Rep. Kjellman believes a solid game plan is needed, and that it's possible.

"We need to get the Iraqis being the first line of defense and standing up to defend their own country, and taking our soldiers off that front line."
