Baldwin statement on Syria

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tammy Baldwin issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s announcement that he will ask Congress to authorize military force in Syria.

"I am pleased that the President is seeking Congressional authorization for any potential strike in Syria. I still believe there must be a strong and convincing case made to the American people and we must work to build an international coalition before we lead or join any military response.  My judgment on any military action in response to the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons will be based on whether clear, focused and achievable objectives and goals are set.”
