Edwards has spent the weekend campaigning in New Hampshire.
(CNN) - Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards said Sunday that Congress needs to use every tool available to push for an Iraq troop withdrawal.
"I think America said very clearly in the November 2006 election that they wanted a very different course in Iraq," Edwards said on Face the Nation. "And I think the Congress has a responsibility under that mandate."
"I think they should stand their ground," he said. "I think they should not submit a single funding bill to the president for the war that doesn't have a timetable for withdrawal. And I think they should use whatever legislative tool is available to them, including a filibuster."
