Noem Unlikely To Support Syria Strike

The issue of a military strike on Syria will be on top of the agenda when Congress returns to Washington next week. South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem has not been convinced by the Presidents arguments yet…

Noem, who held a number of town hall meetings during the August break, didn’t hear much if any public support for military action…

Noem says it’s hard to know where our national interests are involved…

Noem, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, says they have had a number of briefings on the issue, and expect more when they get back to Washington.
