The three members of North Dakota's congressional delegation have not yet decided whether to support President Barack Obama's proposed military strike on Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.
The Obama administration says the limited strikes would be in retaliation for the Syrian government using chemical weapons in the country's civil war. Obama is seeking congressional approval.
Rep. Kevin Cramer says if he had to vote today he'd be inclined to vote against the request, but he wants to hear more from the president before making up his mind.
Sen. John Hoeven says he needs to see more of a plan from Obama before backing a military strike. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says she wants more information on how a strike would impact the standing of the U.S. in the Middle East.
