How Indiana Representatives May Vote on the Syria Strike

Yesterday the Huffington Post published a projection of House votes on President Obama's Syria strike. It does not show any Indiana representative voting in favor. In the Undecided column it shows Democrats Carson and Visclosky and Republicans Brooks and Messer; in the No/Lean No it shows Republicans Buschon, Rokita, Stutzman, Walorski, and Young. For the record, the combined projected Yes and Undecided votes would give the President 196, well short of the 217 projected No's. You can see the entire House projection here.

Late yesterday, Republican Luke Messer announced that he would vote for the Syrian strike; see here for details.
