SALEM, Ore. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Greg Walden says he'll vote against authorizing the use of military force in Syria.
Walden says in a news release that he made the decision Monday after attending a classified intelligence briefing. He says President Barack Obama and his administration have not persuaded him that the United States has a clear objective in Syria.
Walden represents Eastern Oregon and is the only Republican in the state's congressional delegation. He joins Democrats Earl Blumenauer, Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader in opposing or leaning against backing a military strike.
Democratic Rep. Suzanne Bonamici and Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley are undecided.
