Sen. Ron Johnson: U.S. must send ground troops to fight ISIS

EAU CLAIRE (AP) — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson says President Barack Obama made a mistake in pulling troops from Iraq that let Islamic State fighters gain control in Iraq and Syria.

Johnson told the Leader-Telegram of Eau Claire that ISIS is a bigger threat now, with better equipment, organization and support.

He says the solution is for the United States to declare war and send American troops back to the Middle East to fight ISIS.

Johnson says the airstrikes the U.S. is already undertaking won't be enough.
