Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan says ISIS is a regional threat and that he's concerned that senators such Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain will use it "as an excuse" for sending ground troops to the Middle East.

"Right now I think mostly it's regional in nature. What I don't want is people making it a bigger threat than it is to the United States so that the John McCains of the world and the people who want to send more troops." Ryan said on NBC local news in Youngstown, Ohio, over the weekend. "If John McCain were in charge we'd be in seven different wars right now across the world. I don't want people like that using that as an excuse so they can drum up more troops to be sent over."
