ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Sen. Pete Domenici on Thursday withdrew his support of President Bush's Iraq war policy and embraced a proposal to bring home most troops by March.
The longtime New Mexico senator is the latest of several Republican stalwarts who have abandoned Bush on Iraq in the past 10 days.
Last week, Sens. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and George Voinovich, R-Ohio, said the U.S. should significantly reduce its military presence in Iraq while bolstering diplomatic efforts. Sen. John Warner, R-Va., this month is expected to propose a new approach.
