Today U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD) announced her support for the Iran nuclear deal,giving us the 34 Senate votes needed to protect the President's veto of a resolution of disapproval of the Iran deal! This amazing victory means that the deal will withstand Congressional rejection!
We can’t rest yet, though. We still need 41 votes in the Senate to win the vote outright and avoid the veto situation. Unfortunately, a veto can easily be undone by future presidents. So now, we still need to focus on the remaining undecided 7 Senators to officially seal the deal.
Call the Congressional switchboard (202 224 3121) and ask to be connected to one of these offices of undecided Senators. Tell them you support the deal, and they should too!
