Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), who voted against committing troops in Iraq during the Bush presidency, supports a limited military strike in Syria in response to a reported chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime last month.

“I believe the president’s plan is the best response,” she said on the Senate floor Monday.
