Count Tea Party congressional candidate Jack Davis as among those questioning President Obama's authority to order military action in Libya.
Brandishing his new "Tea Party" credentials, Davis said Wednesday the Constitution stipulates that only Congress has the power to declare war.
"Congress did not declare war," Davis said. "The American people neither understand nor support this war. There is no clear definition of victory and no exit strategy. President Obama has put our nation, our military personnel, our blood and our treasure at risk in an unlawful conflict.
"If elected, I will aggressively defend the exclusive right of Congress to declare war," Davis added.
