US Rep. Adam Kinzinger, an Iraq war veteran and Republican supporter of the president's request for authorization to strike at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, reached out to the White House on September 2 to offer to help the president and didn't hear back until he noted the lack of a response during a Sunday morning TV appearance.

Kinzinger, R-Illinois, tells CNN his chief of staff sent an email Monday to his White House contact in the office of Legislative Affairs, informing the White House that the congressman would be supporting the authorization in the media and on the floor of the House. Kinzinger would also be willing to help "whip" - or drum up support for - the authorization, the email noted.

Responding to his comments on ABC News' "This Week" about not hearing back, a White House official told CNN: "We want to work with anyone who is interested in helping and I'm sure he'll be getting a call soon."
