Heinrich supports strike on Syria

-A A +A

SANTA FE (AP) — New Mexico Sen. Martin Heinrich says he’ll vote for a Senate resolution authorizing U.S. military action in Syria.
The first-term Democrat says he doesn’t support sending American troops into Syria but says it’s essential to deter the regime of Bashar al-Assad from again using poison gas.
Heinrich acknowledges that his decision runs counter to the positions of many of his closest supporters but he says he’s convinced it is the right decision.
Heinrich disclosed his decision in a letter to constituents.
Here is a portion of the letter.
The last week has been the most difficult I have experienced in my more than eight years in public office. What I share with you now will not win me any popularity awards, and some of you may well never forgive me for my decision today. All I ask is that you read this entire letter and seek to understand how I came to make this decision.
