Donnelly Will Back Iran Deal

Senator Joe Donnelly announced today that he would back the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the US and its allies. Donnelly cited his well-known commitment to military families and veterans as the reason for his support:
“With or without this deal, the day may come when we are left with no alternative but to take military action to prevent Iran from crossing the nuclear threshold. If that day does come, and I am faced with a vote to authorize military force against Iran, I owe it to the men and women of our Armed Forces and to the people of Indiana to have exhausted every other option to stop Iran before we would consider putting any of our servicemembers in harm’s way.”
