MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Members of Wisconsin's congressional delegation are largely undecided about whether the U.S. should take military action in Syria.

The U.S. and France have accused President Bashar Assad of using chemical weapons against his own people, and President Barack Obama has asked Congress to authorize a military strike.

Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind says he is undecided after hearing White House briefings and talking to residents in his district. Kind says most people he has spoken with are not eager for what they fear could become another long military engagement in the Middle East.

But Kind says not taking action also sends a message to Assad and that could be the wrong message.

Other members of Wisconsin's delegation also say they need to see more evidence before making a decision.
