Debbie Wasserman Schultz Backs Iran Deal

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) backed President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Wasserman Schultz said, “I’ve gone through a gut-wrenching, thought provoking process where I wrapped up that process by spending the last few weeks talking with my constituents. My number one goal in making this decision was to reach the conclusion, based on what I thought would be most likely to prevent Iran from achieving their nuclear weapons goals. In weighing all the information that I had in front of me, I concluded that the best thing to do is to vote in support of the Iran deal and make sure that we can put Iran years away from being a threshold nuclear state and ensure that we can more closely focus on their terrorist activity,”
