(Worthy News) - Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-N.V., finally lent his support to the Obama administration's nuclear deal with Iran. Reid is retiring in 2017, and his silence on the matter fueled speculation that he might join his presumed successor, Senator Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., in opposition to the deal.
Reid's endorsement is a boost for the deal's prospects. "One of the most important national security challenges of our generation is stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon… After years of study and months of careful review of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and its predecessor agreement, I support this agreement because I believe it is the best path to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon," Reid said in a statement.
"I strongly support this historic agreement and will do everything in my power to ensure that it stands," he closed. [ Source ]
