Johnson Comments on Vote Against Use of Military Force in Syria

The vote on a resolution to authorize military force in Syria was taken only 25 hours after formal hearings began. 

“There were so many unanswered questions that I could not even consider voting "yes."  It is unfortunate that a matter of such gravity was so inappropriately rushed.

“It is the job of President Obama and members of his administration to demonstrate why military action in Syria is in our national security interest.  Until I cast the final vote, I will keep an open mind as I continue to seek answers to my questions.”
