Senate Republicans Reject White House Plea on Iran – John Bresnahan and Burgess Everett

(Daily alert)

Senate Republicans are strongly rejecting a White House plea for a delay in a new round of economic sanctions against Iran. After a classified briefing on Wednesday by top administration officials, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) said, “The pitch was very unconvincing. It was fairly anti-Israeli”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said, “It’s pretty obvious that what the administration is promoting is something the Israelis think is a bad deal for them. It’s pretty clear the Sunni Arab allies of ours also think it’s a bad deal. Looking at it strictly from an American point of view, I think it’s a bad deal as well.”  (Politico)
