Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said Tuesday that President Obama should seek approval from Congress for any plan he has for combating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
A Republican leadership aide said McConnell is not necessarily calling for a vote on a new use-of-force resolution.
With his job as majority leader hanging in the balance ahead of the closely contested Senate elections, Reid declined before and after the meeting to address whether ISIL should get a vote. "I'm inclined to not rush into everything," he told one reporter. "I'm just going to wait and try to get the facts before I jump off on something you read on the Internet someplace."
