WAVY correspondent Ava Hurdle covered Rep. Scott’s 38th Annual Labor Day Picnic

WAVY-TV: Congressman Bobby Scott hosted his 38th annual Labor Day picnic Monday afternoon, and some of the current events discussed included the nation’s foreign policy. This as politicians talk regularly about a growing threat in the Middle East with the Islamic militant group ISIS.   Congressman Scott said the President is working on a strategy to deal with ISIS, despite criticism from people in both parties.

“The same people that are anxious about doing something now are the ones that got us into Iraq without any justification at all, and we’re still unwinding our way out of that,” Scott said. “So we need to do something, and the President is working on a strategy that is limited, targeted and won’t get us involved in a ground war.”
