After President Barack expressed a willingness to explore a diplomatic solution to the Syria chemical weapons crisis, the Stamford Advocate reached out to members of Connecticut's Congressional delegation for reaction.

U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, who had voted last week against a measure authorizing a military strike, told the Advocate the right approach was a "close call." The senator has a page online that reaches out for opinions from his constitutents.

U.S. Rep. Jim Himes remained "deeply skeptical" about the impact of a military strike, and U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal worried about military action drawing the U.S. into a "protracted" civil war in Syria.
