Democratic Senator Booker Backs Iran Nuclear Pact

Thursday, 03 Sep 2015 02:06 PM

Democratic U.S. Senator Cory Booker said on Thursday he would vote in favor of the nuclear agreement with Iran, calling the pact between world powers and Tehran "the better of two flawed options."

Booker, who issued a statement explaining his position, brings to 35 the list of senators supporting the deal. All of them are President Barack Obama's fellow Democrats or independents who typically vote with them.

Booker, who represents New Jersey, a state with a large Jewish population, had been seen as a Democrat who might vote against the deal, given the Israeli government's strong opposition to it.

The state's senior senator, Robert Menendez, is one of only two Senate Democrats who has announced he opposes the nuclear agreement.
