South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford says he will vote against military intervention in Syria but added he does think the United States will strike that country.

News 2's Brendan Clark sat down with Congressman Sanford Thursday for a one-on-one interview to talk about Syria and what military intervention means for the U.S.

The Republican lawmaker said  his constituents are weary of military and financial engagements in the Middle East and  added the Obama administration has not answered questions about why it's in America's interest and what the exit strategy would be.

While Sanford talks Syria in the Lowcountry, President Obama is at the G-20 summit in Russia, lobbying with members of Congress back home. Obama is looking to build support for a resolution authorizing a U.S. military strike on Syria. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes says Obama's been making phone calls to lawmakers even as he attends the economic summit. The president spoke to a bipartisan group of five lawmakers yesterday. The administration held another round of closed-door meetings with lawmakers today about its intelligence on Syria.
