Western New York Congressman Chris Collins now says should a vote on military action against Syria ever be taken he’ll vote now.
"While I understand that this situation is very fluid, and the administration has agreed to diplomatic efforts through the United Nations, I am unconvinced that a U.S. military strike in Syria would be in the best interest of America and its allies in the region. The emergence of a non-military solution to this crisis -- as we have seen in just the last 24 hours -- demonstrates how ill-conceived and poorly thought out the President's plan has been since its inception."
Collins, who represents Genesee County in Congress, says his constituents are overwhelmingly opposed to any U.S. military involvement in Syria and the president did not do enough to convince him otherwise.
