Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., confirmed in a statement Monday evening she would vote against military intervention in Syria.
“I will be voting against a resolution to authorize the use of military force against the Syrian regime.
“Over the past few weeks, I have heard from thousands of West Virginians who have urged me to vote against military intervention in Syria.
“My reasons for voting no pertain to the lack of coalition support and the president’s failure to make the case as to how limited air strikes are in the best interests of the United States.”
Capito is not alone. USA TODAY is reporting at least 120 House members and 19 senators will vote against action in Syria.
