The battle over the Iran nuclear deal in Congress is much like the fight over Obamacare in 2010, Sen. Steve Daines told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"This has become only partisan in the support for the agreement," the first-term Montana Republican told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "There's no bipartisan support for this agreement.

"This is a little like Obamacare, where it became only the Democrats on one side — but there were Democrats and Republicans opposed to Obamacare."

Daines noted that many top Democrats, including influential New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, opposed the deal that would release as much as $150 billion held from Tehran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.

The Senate began debating the agreement Tuesday. No Republicans support the deal.

Daines is supporting a "Stop the Iran Deal" rally Wednesday in Washington sponsored by GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

"We're looking at the math right now on the votes," he told Hayworth. "I'm very disappointed to see that we're not getting more Democrats joining us."
