U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) issued the following statement today on the situation regarding Syria.
"I met today with President Obama, and he made a forceful case that action needs to be taken regarding Syria's use of chemical weapons. Tonight he will take that message to the American people. I am hopeful that we can still find a diplomatic solution. I encourage President Obama to pursue action at the U.N. to build international support and determine the sincerity of the Russian and Syrian proposal."
