Indiana lawmakers share their thoughts on Syria


Senator Joe Donnelly was in Goshen to tour a VA outpatient clinic on Friday, but Syria was on many people's minds.

Donnelly calls it a "serious situation" that should have a coordinated response from the US and other nations.

"I was actually on a call with the White House a little bit earlier this afternoon," said Sen. Donnelly. "They are working together with us and we're working on a response. What we're trying to make sure is this government in Syria can never ever attack its own people."

Representative Jackie Walorski is more skeptical of the president's plan.  "It remains unclear how a 'limited, narrow act' will fulfill a comprehensive strategy to protect our national interest and shield our allies," Walorski said in a written statement.
