After receiving over 3,000 calls in opposition to a military strike on Syria, Congressman Steve Daines announced on the evening of September 8 that he will not sign on to a strike against Syria. The congressman explained his position during a statewide conference call.

“I will not be voting in support of authorizing U.S. military involvement in Syria,” Daines said. “Montanans have sent a strong message that U.S. military action in Syria is not the solution, and as Montana’s congressman, I am committed to ensuring Montanans’ voices are heard. I have spent the past few weeks meeting with, and hearing from, Montanans, and learning more about the situation at hand through briefings from key military and administration leaders. There’s a great amount of uncertainty about the best way to resolve the conflict in Syria, but today, one thing is apparent: the objective isn’t clear and the outcome remains uncertain.”

The announcement came shortly before an announcement that Syria had agreed to a proposal from Russia to hand over its chemical weapon supply.

Senators Jon Tester and Max Baucus did not indicate their voting preference before the news out of Syria.
