Congressmen consult public on Syria action

Political representatives unsure of which way to vote, turn to constituents for advice on possible military action.

    A vote on whether the US should take military action in Syria is expected before Congress in the coming days.

    But many representatives are unsure of which way to vote.

    Many, like Democratic Congressman Jim McDermott, have been turning to their constituents to help them make up their minds.
