Little support in OH delegation on military action

CINCINNATI (AP) — Most members of Ohio’s congressional delegation are balking at President Barack Obama’s call for U.S. military action in Syria.

A survey by The Associated Press finds that both U.S. senators and most of the House members from Ohio say they are undecided. Two Republican congressmen say they would vote against at this point, and two others say they are leaning against.

The only delegation member to voice support for limited military action against Syria so far has been House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur), the Republican from West Chester.

First-term Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Cincinnati is an Iraq war veteran who says the president hasn’t clearly made his case. He says he has a lot of unanswered questions and remains undecided, which reflects the position of most of the delegation.
