WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham today made this statement on President Obama securing at least 34 Senate votes in support of his nuclear deal with Iran. With 34 votes, President Obama will prevent any possibility of a veto override by Congress.
Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has been one of the leading critics of the deal and warned of the dangers of a nuclear Iran.
“Vote #34 represents a very good day for the Iranian regime. The Iranians have now secured enough votes in the Senate to ensure they have a pathway to a bomb, the missile to deliver it, and the money to pay for it.
“The only reason the Ayatollah and his henchmen aren’t dancing in the streets of Tehran is they don’t believe in dancing.”
