Obama secures Iran nuclear deal with Barbara Mikulski voteDemocratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski from Maryland added her support to the White House-backed Iran nuclear deal late Wednesday morning, giving President Obama the necessary votes to withstand any congressional veto. In a tweet, Jonathan Weisman of the New York Times wrote:

“Sen. Barbara Mikulski supports the #IranDeal … She makes a veto of the Iran deal bulletproof.” And Matt Lee, a reporter with the Associated Press, tweeted: “Democrat Mikulski is 34th senator to support #Iran nuke deal, ensuring landmark Obama victory.” Her stated support marks a huge win for Obama, who’s been on a public relations campaign for weeks to press the deal with Iran, at points calling on Americans to contact their congressional members and advocate similarly.
