U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin heads to D.C. today to begin Syria work; cancels Chicago event

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is returning to Washington DC today to begin work on the Syria situation, according to his office.

That means he has canceled his appearance at tomorrow’s City Club event, the City Club of Chicago reports.

He returns after President Obama on Saturday urged Congress to support his intention of limited military action in Syria.

Durbin, who is in St. Louis, will be arriving in D.C. this afternoon.

Durbin is a member of the foreign relations committee, which is meeting tomorrow.
