Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha McSally (AZ-02) issued the following statement on the U.S. Military Strikes in Syria:

“Tonight the United States responded to the atrocities of the Assad regime with measured, yet decisive military action—launching approximately sixty Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian airbase used for recent chemical attacks. I’m proud that I have successfully advocated in Congress to keep the Tomahawk missile line at Raytheon in Tucson open so that this weapon was ready and available when our armed forces needed it. The use of banned and deadly chemical weapons to murder innocent men, women, and children is evil and deserves a just response."
