Paula Jean Swearengin: End wars of choice; protect human rights when needed

America must take action as part of the international community to protect peace and human rights when necessary. Totally against "wars of choice" and will stop presidents from taking America to war unnecessarily. The best role America can play is to support economic development as we did with the Marshall Plan after World War II. Such investment can help our own economy as much as others.

Natalie Tennant: We should consider ground troops against ISIS

[At a West Virginia Public Broadcasting debate, the two candidates] discussed the Middle East, with Tennant saying Congress should debate whether to send ground troops to fight the growing ISIS movement. Capito called it a failure of the Obama administration: "Because of the president's really weak policies in Iraq, we find ourselves in the position where this terrorist group has been fomenting," Capito argued, "without raising money and raising membership."
