Menendez Likely to Oppose Accord

US Republicans are likely to pick up another Democratic vote against the Iran nuclear deal next week when Sen. Robert Menendez makes his position on the deal official.
Menendez’s office said Friday he will deliver a “major address” on the deal Tuesday in New Jersey, where he will announce his decision on whether to vote for a congressional measure of disapproval on the deal scheduled for next month, CNN reported.  
Menendez is expected to announce he is against the deal. The former Senate Foreign Relations Committee ranking member has been strongly critical of the deal and the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran.
If he announces he is a “no” as predicted, he will join Sen. Chuck Schumer as the only Democrats officially against the deal.
