WASHINGTON - While the majority of Illinois' congressional delegation has not made public their position on attacking Syria, the Washington Post is reporting the delegation divided.
Four Democrats are listed as "undecided": U.S. House Reps. Bill Enyart (D-12), Jan Schakowsky (D-9), Tammy Duckworth (D-8) and U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL).
Congressman Randy Hultgren (R-14) is the only Illinois Republican the WaPo lists as "undecided."
Democrat U.S. House members Dan Lipinski (D-3) and Mike Quigley (D-5) are "leaning no." Quigley is quoted as saying: "Although I have serious concerns about a unilateral military action, any use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime is completely unacceptable."
Only U.S. Senator Mark Kirk, a former U.S. Naval Reserves officer, is on record as supporting the Obama Administration's proposed missile attack on Syria, saying: "While I would oppose any resolution that authorizes boots on the ground in Syria, I would support a narrow authorization for a missle strike targeting those responsible for using chemical weapons and deterring future use of such weapons."
