Republican Scott Brown took issue with Democratic senator Jeanne Shaheen's characterization of the American military operations in the Middle East as an "occupying force" in the two candidates' final debate Thursday evening. The New Hampshire politicians were debating the use of U.S. troops against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria.
"I don't think we want tens of thousands of American troops as an occupying force for sixty years, as we've had in Korea," Shaheen said.
"With respect to Senator Shaheen, we are a liberating force," Brown said in his rebuttal. "We are not an occupying force, senator." Watch the video below:
The Real Clear Politics average of polls shows a close race, with Shaheen leading Brown by just under three points.
