Rep. John Kline talks Sen. Marco Rubio, military challenges and state of the GOP


Rep. John Kline, Republican in the Second District serving his final year in Congress after 14 years, criticized the Obama Administration's handling of foreign military crises, elaborated on his recent presidential endorsement of Sen. Marco Rubio and visibly worried over the state of the Minnesota Republican Party in a wide ranging interview with local political reporters Monday.

Kline, who was recently in Afghanistan and Kuwait, said President Obama has used a political calculation in capping the number of troops in Afghanistan, leaving commanders without the necessary flexibility to get Afghans the training and assistance they need to defeat the enemy Taliban. Kline said that impression came through in conversations with military officers there, and that he and Republicans in Congress would deliver that message to the White House, with potential legislative efforts to that effect.
