Robertson reserves Syria judgment

Robertson reserves Syria judgment

The democrat candidate for the 23rd congressional district of New York in the 2014 election is giving her thoughts on the heightening situation in Syria.

Martha Robertson says since she is not a member of Congress and hasn’t been briefed on exactly what happened in Syria regarding chemical weapons, she will reserve judgment.

Area Congressman Tom Reed says he will not support any intervention in Syria unless he sees compelling evidence to back a military strike.

President Obama has called on Congress to vote on the matter.
