Ohio lawmakers respond to Iran attack


WASHINGTON (WDTN) – Ohio lawmakers are responding after Iran launched over a dozen missiles at two Iraq military bases housing U.S. troops on Tuesday.

First, the president tweeted “All is well!” and added “so far, so good” when referencing casualties and damages.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine sent his thoughts to Ohioans in the armed forces who work to keep us safe.

Meanwhile, Senator Rob Portman commented that the attack is a “continuation of a reckless and provocative policy.”

Congressman Warren Davidson asked for prayers “for safety and success of our troops.”

“Iran’s attack last night, its malign activities, and its announcement that it will increase its uranium enrichment continues to justify the maximum pressure campaign, which includes sanctions,” Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) said. “We cannot allow for a nuclear Iran, and I encourage our allies to come to the table to help negotiate a better deal to prevent that from happening.”

This story will continue to be updated as local officials react to the Iran attack on the military base housing U.S. military.
