Rep. Kinzinger (R-IL): Obama Has Not Even Reached Out to Congressional Supporters on Syria
On Sunday, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), a supporter of military action against Syria, told George Stephanopolous on ABC News that President Obama had not even reached out to Congress despite having Republican supporters there on Syria.
“I think this goes back to, not just itself, but you can’t begin to build a relationship with Congress for the first time when you need their support on something like this,” Kinzinger said. “A week and a half ago, my office actually reached out to the White House and said, hey, we support the strike on Syria, we’re going to help you round up some support if you need it, I haven’t heard back from them yet. I haven’t heard back from anyone. I don’t even know who my White House liaison is, which is supposed to be creating this relationship.”
