The following are statements and tweets from elected leaders in Indiana.
Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN):
“The recent chemical weapons attack was the latest in a series of barbaric actions by the Assad regime. I support tonight’s international military response, which demonstrates that there are consequences for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians. Now, I want to hear from the president, the military, and our diplomatic leaders on the strategy moving forward.”
Sen. Todd Young (R-IN):
“It is in America’s national security interests to deter the use of chemical weapons, and the international community must not look the other way as Assad continues to murder his own people. I thank our brave service members and our allies who carried out this military action. I look forward to receiving a full briefing on this latest military action and the administration’s broader strategy in Syria.”
Rep. Jim Banks (R-3rd)
