Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., issued the following statement regarding a likely Senate vote on authorizing a military strike against Syria.
“I have not seen a proposal for U.S. military action in Syria that I support and I plan to vote ‘no’ if given the opportunity. I’ve met with hundreds of Wyoming folks over the past few weeks in the state and heard from thousands more. They are asking the right questions. What would be our objective? What U.S. interests would be served? There are bad guys on both sides of this civil war so how would our intervention help? How much is it going to cost? I haven’t heard satisfactory answers.
