Alexander: ‘I Will Vote No’ On Senate Syria Resolution


Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said Monday that he would vote against the Senate’s authorization for military action in Syria.

“I will vote ‘no’ because of too much uncertainty about what comes next. After Step A, what will be Steps B, C, D and E? I see too much risk that the strike will do more harm than good, by setting off a chain of consequences that could involve American fighting men and women in another long-term Middle East conflict,” Alexander said in a speech in Nashville, according to the Commerical Appeal.
