Minneapolis, Minn. - If President Obama is hoping for broad congressional support of military action in Syria, he has more work to do with Minnesota lawmakers.
As things currently stand, only Sen. Al Franken and Congressman Keith Ellison say they support military action in Syria.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar released a new statement Tuesday pushing for a more narrow resolution than is currently being discussed.
"I believe the current draft of the resolution is too broad and I continue to strongly believe that we should not have American troops on the ground in Syria," said Sen. Klobuchar.
Three Minnesota Representatives also appear undecided: Rep. Tim Waltz, Rep. John Kline and Rep. Betty McCollum.
The four remaining members of Minnesota's congressional delegation appear poised to vote against a resolution authorizing military action in Syria.
"I believe the President's request for military action in Syria is too broad, too open-ended, too risky and does not identify a clear U.S. national interest for military engagement and putting U.S. troops in harms way," said Representative Erik Paulsen on Tuesday.
He joins Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rep. Collin Peterson and Rep. Rick Nolan in opposition.
"We have no friends in that conflict," said Rep. Nolan on Tuesday during an interview in Duluth. "I know a lot of people say they're for the strike but against boots on the ground. Well guess what? A strike inevitably leads to retaliation which leads to a change in circumstances."
