Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Tarrant gathered a group of veterans today to criticize Congressman Bernard Sanders alleged lack of support for military programs.

Tarrant and the veterans faulted Sanders for voting against bills that contained funding for additional armor for troops in Iraq.

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver says Sanders has supported every piece of stand-alone legislation to provide funding for armor and other equipment designed to keep troops safer.

He says Sanders has voted against some larger spending bills that contained such provisions, but for other reasons.
