Don’t hold your breath on this one….
Check it out:
A growing number of U.S. senators now support the Iran nuclear deal. Just five more are needed to sustain President Obama’s promised veto of a resolution to disapprove the agreement.
Announcements of support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) took the number of its Democratic supporters in the Senate to 29.
Assuming that all Republicans vote to disapprove the deal when the resolution comes to the floor by mid-September, the support of 13 Democrats would be needed to override a promised presidential veto.
But only two Democrats – Sens. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) – had announced their opposition to the deal as of late Tuesday. Eleven of the still-undeclared 15 would have to join them to reach the target.
