House GOP says it has votes to disapprove of Iran deal

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Republicans say they have the votes to disapprove of the Iran nuclear deal. But it's not clear if there would be enough votes in the House to override a presidential veto.

Democrats are stepping up their support of the agreement the Obama administration and other world powers negotiated with Iran. Congress is engaged in a 60-day review of the deal.

A resolution of disapproval has been introduced by Illinois Republican Peter Roskam. And he says, "The more time members spend evaluating this agreement, the more they realize it's an historic mistake."

President Barack Obama is counting on Democrats to sustain his veto, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said they will.

Today, California Democrats Adam Schiff and Anna Eshoo joined an expanding list of lawmakers who have announced their support for the accord.
