Democratic Senate Candidate Ford Says Kerry Should Apologize

Nashville (AP) -- Democratic US Senate Candidate Harold Ford Junior said Wednesday he doesn't agree with Senator John Kerry's remarks about American troops.

On Monday, Kerry told a group of California students that people unable to succeed in the US educational system would likely "get stuck in Iraq," a line Kerry says was a botched joke.

Ford said in a news release that Kerry was wrong whatever the intent and he needs to apologize to American soldiers.

Ford said he knows how hard American troops work and the sacrifices they make.

Still Ford repeated his feelings on the war in Iraq and said staying the course in Iraq isn't working.
