Young looks to hold onto 9th District seat against Yoder

U.S. House race focuses on economy, social programs


> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Iran and national defense

The U.S. must persuade Iran that it’s serious about preventing the country from obtaining a nuclear weapon, Young said, as he added that’s the only way diplomacy will work.

“We need an administration that’s very serious about sending unambiguous signals that every option is on the table,” he said.

The Obama administration sent mixed signals about Iraq, and now the Middle Eastern country is now susceptible to Iranian influence, Young said. He also has criticized Obama for his relations with Israel, as Young said the administration’s relationship with America’s ally has been clouded with uncertainty.

Yoder said the country isn’t interested in a “decades long war against Iran” after what has transpired over the past 10 years in Iraq and Afghanistan, and with troops finally coming home.

“I know for sure that we are war fatigued,” she said.

Diplomacy is the answer in Iran, Yoder continued. She said an attack by Israel or the U.S. against Iran would likely only delay their capability to produce a nuclear weapon by two to four years.

To protect and improve the country, Young said she would focus on home-building and domestic issues.

“And make sure we have a strong middle class,” she said.
