Deal Gathers Momentum

Three US House Democrats from New York and a House Democrat from Florida who is running for a senate seat endorsed President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran on Monday, lending fresh momentum to the pact from political quarters that once appeared most leery of it, the New York Times reported.  
In rapid succession, Representatives Nydia M. Velazquez, Gregory W. Meeks and Yvette Clarke of New York backed the deal, as did Representative Patrick Murphy, the Democratic establishment’s choice to compete for the senate seat being vacated by Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio.
“There is ‘no other available alternative,’” Murphy wrote, quoting Florida’s Democratic senator, Bill Nelson, who also supports the deal. “On balance, I cannot let possibilities a decade or more in the future, however troubling, outweigh the immediate benefits of this agreement.”
