:ASHINGTON ² Demo-
crats clinched the crucial Senate
votes Tuesday to block passage
of a disapproval resolution
against the Iran nuclear accord,
an outcome that would be a
major win for President Barack
Obama against united Republi-
can opposition.
But supporters of the deal
stopped short of declaring vic-
tory amid the fast-paced devel-
opments as lawmakers returned
to :ashington from their ¿ ve-
week summer recess. That was
because it remained uncertain
whether all 41 Democratic and
independent senators now on re-
cord in favor of the deal would
also support a ¿ libuster to block
a ¿ nal vote on the disapproval
resolution.
Still, the complicated ma-
chinery of Congress was turn-
ing in favor of the president on
his top foreign policy priority,
despite GOP control of both
the House and the Senate. Al-
ready supporters of the deal
have the votes in hand to uphold
Obama’s veto of a disapproval
resolution, should that become
necessary. Blocking the disap-
proval resolution with a ¿ libus-
ter, while ideal from the :hite
House view because it would
spare Obama from a veto ¿ ght,
would not change the ultimate
outcome.
“This agreement will stand,”
Senate Minority Leader Har-
ry Reid, D-Nev., said Tues-
day morning at the Carnegie
Endowment for International
Peace. “America will uphold its
commitment and we will seize

country’s nuclear program.
Republicans who control the
House and Senate strongly op-
pose the pact, saying it makes
dangerous concessions to Iran,
and they hope to push through
a resolution of disapproval this
week.
Leaders of Israel have been
strongly lobbying against the
deal they say could empow-
er Iran, but had succeeded in
winning over only three Senate
Democrats, albeit all of them
prominent ¿ gures ² Chuck
Schumer of New York, Bob
Menendez of New Jersey and
Ben Cardin of Maryland, the top
Democrat on the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee. Manchin
added his name to that list Tues-
day.
But the majority of Dem-
ocrats have swung behind the
president, and predictions that
the issue would dominate dis-
cussion during Congress’ Au-
gust recess never came to pass
as political headlines were large-
ly overtaken by Donald Trump’s
presidential candidacy. The two
topics will converge on :ednes-
day, though, when Trump joins
Te[as Sen. Ted Cruz for a rally
to oppose the deal ² the same
day Hillary Rodham Clinton de-
livers a speech supporting it.
The deal aims to keep Iran
at least a year away from being
able to produce enough nuclear
material for a weapon, before
the restrictions ease after a de-
cade. Iran is currently assessed
to be only two to three months
away from being able to enrich
enough uranium for a bomb,
though the Iranians insist they
have no intention of producing a
nuclear weapon.

none
this opportunity to stop Iran
from getting a nuclear weapon.”
:hite House Press Secretary
Josh Earnest made clear the ad-
ministration’s preference for the
Senate to block the disapproval
resolution before it could reach
Obama’s desk.
“:e certainly would e[pect
that those members of Congress
who support the agreement to
take the necessary steps in Con-
gress to prevent Congress from
undermining the agreement,” he
told reporters.
As the day began Tuesday
Sen. Joe Manchin of :est 9ir-
ginia announced his opposition
to the deal, a surprise “no” vote
from a moderate Democrat who
had sounded like he favored the
pact aimed at curbing Iran’s nu-
clear ambitions.
But that setback for support-
ers was erased within the hour
as three Democrats seen as po-
tential “no” votes on the deal all
announced they would support
it. Those senators were Richard
Blumenthal of Connecticut, Ron
:yden of Oregon and Gary Pe-
ters of Michigan.
“The fundamental question
for me is what this agreement
means for the prospects of Iran
getting a nuclear bomb,” :yden
said. “This agreement with the
duplicitous and untrustworthy
Iranian regime falls short of
what I had envisioned, however,
I have decided the alternatives
are even more dangerous.”
The agreement struck by
Iran, the U.S. and ¿ ve other
world powers in July will pro-
vide Iran hundreds of billions
of dollars in relief from interna-
tional sanctions in e[change for
a decade of constraints on the
