Syria was the topic of conversation at a fundraiser for Congressman Larry Bucshon on Friday.

Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, arrived to American Patriot's headquarters in Evansville for the event.

People inside told 14 News the speaker answered questions on why he thinks the U.S. should act on Syria.

Demonstrators outside say they're concerned that Boehner's visit could influence Bucshon to change his mind and vote yet for U.S. military intervention.

"They have a disagreement there about this particular issue, but you don't know how people are going to vote until they push that button," said Chairman of the Vanderburgh County Republican Party, Wayne Parke.

Dr. Bucshon left Friday's event without granting our request for an interview.
