Senators warn Kerry of ‘hard sell’ at home over Iran nuclear deal

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is warning US Secretary of State John Kerry that approval of a nuclear agreement with Iran may be a “tough sell” on Capitol Hill.

 

Congress will have 60 days to review an agreement should one be reached within the next several hours here in Austria’s capital, as is expected. The State Department says that “major issues” remain unresolved after 16 straight days of negotiations, though Iranian and French officials say the process will conclude by Monday.

 

“It’s going to be a very hard sell, if it’s completed, in Congress,” McConnell (R-Kentucky) said. “I know there will be a strong pull not to go against the president on something as important as this is to him, but I hope there will be enough Democrats willing to look at this objectively.”
