By John Fritze, The Baltimore Sun
Members of Congress have been debating for weeks whether the U.S. should launch airstrikes in Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons on Aug. 21. Here's where Maryland's lawmakers stand:
Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski
Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, D: One of only 19 senators who voted against the Iraq war resolution in 2002, Mikulski has said the circumstances are different this time and that she would support the use of limited strikes requested by the president. "I believe the president's plan is the best response to protecting U.S. security interests in the region," she said on the Senate floor.
