Last bid to kill Iran nuclear deal blocked in Senate

Speaker of the House Boehner pauses during a news conference on Capitol HillBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked legislation meant to kill the Iran nuclear deal for a third time, securing perhaps the greatest foreign policy win of President Barack Obama’s six years in office and clearing the way to implement the accord.
