King looks across the East Front steps of the House as Pelosi leads colleagues in a rally in support of the nuclear deal with Iran at the U.S. Capitol in WashingtonBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Tuesday secured 42 votes in the U.S. Senate for the international nuclear deal with Iran, more than enough to keep Congress from passing a resolution disapproving of the pact. Democratic Senators Richard Blumenthal, Gary Peters, Ron Wyden and Maria Cantwell announced they would support the agreement, just as lawmakers returned to Washington from a month-long summer recess.
