Senate Democrats stake out both sides of Iran deal

U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) speaks at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New JerseyBy Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senator Robert Menendez blasted the U.S.-led international nuclear deal with Iran on Tuesday, vowing to oppose it in defiance of President Barack Obama, who picked up much-needed support for the deal from two other Senate Democrats. As September voting on the agreement in the U.S. Congress neared, Menendez, a former Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman, became the second senior lawmaker from Obama’s own party to announce he would vote to kill the pact with Tehran. “I will vote to disapprove the agreement and, if called upon, would vote to override a veto” by the president, Menendez said in a speech in his home state of New Jersey.
