US House Republicans claim votes to disapprove of Iran deal

WASHINGTON – House Republicans said Monday that they have the votes to disapprove of the Iran nuclear deal as Democrats stepped of their support of the agreement the Obama administration and other world powers negotiated with Tehran.

Since Republicans hold a commanding 246 seats in the House, it was widely expected that they would come up with 218 votes to support a resolution of disapproval. It’s unclear, however, if there would be enough votes in the House to override President Barack Obama’s expected veto of the legislation. The president is counting on fellow Democrats to sustain his veto.
